Tyson Rape Suit Settled




INDIANAPOLIS () -- Mike Tyson has settled the civil suit filed against him by Desiree Washington, the woman he was convicted of raping four years ago, the boxer's lawyer said.


"All I can tell you is that the matter has been resolved and Mike is looking to the future and not to the past, and that's why he resolved this,'' attorney Nathan Dershowitz said from his office in New York on Wednesday.


Dershowitz would not say how much money -- if any -- the settlement involves. Tyson was released March 25 after serving three years of a six-year term at the Indiana Youth Center.


Trial on the suit had been scheduled for July 24 in Indianapolis.
