E-mails from Big Ben's accuser released, case against Ben looking shaky


According to a statement by Hyder filed with the motion to dismiss and to e-mails between McNulty and Hyder, she never mentioned being raped and instead said she wanted to have sex with Roethlisberger and was excited when it happened.

"Ben is so effing hot and I am so bored," McNulty told Hyder in one e-mail sent on July 11, 2008. Hyder said she looked to him as a father figure and often confided in him about personal matters.

On July 13, 2008, two days after the alleged rape, McNulty wrote a joke memo in an e-mail to Hyder announcing that McNulty was resigning because "she is with Big Ben's child and she has relocated to Pittsburgh."

"You can be the god father... Uncle Guy," McNulty said in the next e-mail.

In a written statement, Hyder said McNulty's only concern about the sexual encounter with Roethlisberger was fear that management might find out. She also was upset that she had cheated on a man named Ben, a soldier in Iraq, with whom she was having an online romance.

But in the fall of 2008, McNulty learned that Ben did not exist and the e-mail interactions had been a trick, Hyder said. She became so distraught over the hoax that she began to see doctors and ended up at a hospital, Hyder said.

In the motion for sanctions, Roethlisberger's lawyers said McNulty's friends and co-workers made similar statements about McNulty boasting about having sex with Roethlisberger, but Dunlap ignored them.
