Kobe Bryant

In 2003 a 19-year-old woman said she was raped by L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant in the Colorado hotel where she worked. He admitted to the sex but said it was consensual. The criminal case was dropped when she wouldn't testify. The following civil case also wrapped early when a settlement between Kobe and his accuser was reached. STR/AFP/Getty Images
