But Tyson with his lawyer Vincent J. Fuller, states that he did not force her for sex, in fact, she show her desire to do sex with him. When Washington’s lawyer Gregory Garrison questioned him back, Tyson said that he forced her to state that she wanted to have sex with him.

After this cross-examination, the jury was intentional for some time. Then in 1992, Tyson went to jail for six years with probation of four years but was released only in three years in 1995.

After his sentence announcement, he stated that “I don’t come here begging for mercy, ma’am. I can’t see anything good coming from this. I’m here prepared to expect the worst. I’ve been crucified, humiliated worldwide.”

 After release from prison he said, “Just one time (I had to punch someone), somebody said something and I just went over there and hit him. We were locked down for a long time and it was just something that was irritable and I went over there and hit him. We were locked down and couldn’t go to the gym. Somebody got stabbed or something and we were locked down. I was just upset and miserable.”
