Hope Solo, the goalkeeper for the US National team said in a post online that she was not to be blamed in the domestic violence case she faces in Kirkland. feels sure that she will be declared innocent by the end

Hope Solo has stated quite clearly in an online post that she is absolutely innocent in matters having to do with domestic violence. The US soccer player who was previously a Husky said that once all the details were in she felt sure that she would not be held culpable for the charges that were presently held against her. 

Solo is presumably guilty of engaging in a lot of random violence against her sister and nephew in Kirkland, Washington. November 4th is the date set for the court case and Hope feels sure that she will be declared innocent by the end of the trial. 

However, if she is held guilty of the crime or rather misdemeanor, she faces up to half a year in jail. This is the second time Hope Solo has said a few brief words online in the form of a post. She also said her “sorry’s” to her fans on Facebook. 

Hop Solo posted following statement on Tuesday evening on her official Facebook page.

"It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs. This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy.

"In addition, while I understand that the public desires more information regarding the allegations against me, I continue to maintain my innocence against these charges. And, once all the facts come to light and the legal process is concluded, I am confident that I will be fully exonerated."

It’s been almost a decade and a half since she has been a permanent fixture on the National team. She is also a very competent player. Her team execs have decided to allow her to play the game while the trial proceeds. 

The execs have taken this decision after a lot of forethought. They might reconsider their verdict in the light of court evidence when Hope Solo stands trial. 

"U.S. Soccer takes the issue of domestic violence very seriously. From the beginning, we considered the information available and have taken a deliberate and thoughtful approach regarding Hope Solo's status with the national team," U.S. Soccer President, Sunil Gulati, said in a statement Monday night.

"Based on that information, U.S. Soccer stands by our decision to allow her to participate with the team as the legal process unfolds. If new information becomes available we will carefully consider it."

Meanwhile, even shoe giant Nike has decided to continue with its endorsement deal with Solo. But the execs at Nike too have kept Hope Solo under close observation. 

"We are aware of the allegations and that Hope Solo has pled "not guilty" to the charges. Hope remains a Nike athlete and we will continue to monitor the situation," Nike said in a statement.

If the law goes against her, then all deals are off. Her career as a soccer player remains unblemished. And she has quite a record of wins against other teams. 

Solo is 32 years of age and has played in more than 150 matches worldwide. She received gold medals during the Beijing and London Olympics. Thus the lady’s past is flawless except for that minor burst of violence which seems to have landed her in trouble.
