Ashley Solis has come forward as the first woman to publicly accuse Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct.

Solis appeared in front of the media on Tuesday afternoon alongside Tony Buzbee, who is representing the 22 women who have filed lawsuits against the NFL star. She had previously been identified as “Jane Doe #1.”

Now, she is publicly alleging the 25-year-old quarterback assaulted her while she was providing massage therapy at her home on March 30, 2020.

“I’m not afraid anymore. I’m here to take back the power and take back control. I’m a survivor of assault and harassment,” Solis said, as transcribed by the New York Post. “Some days I feel like a hero, other days I feel like a failure.

“I can no longer practice the profession I love the most without my hands shaking during the session. I got into massage therapy to heal people. To heal their minds and bodies. To bring peace to their souls. Deshaun Watson has robbed me of that.

“We were all deceived into thinking Deshaun Watson was a good guy, and unfortunately we know that good guys can do terrible things. People say that I’m doing this just for money. That is false. I come forward now so that Deshaun Watson does not assault another woman.”

Watson and his attorney, Rusty Hardin, have adamantly denied the allegations and have provided letters of support from 18 other women.

It will be interesting to see whether additional accusers publicly speak out and how the NFL and Houston Texans will respond to the latest development in the ongoing situation.
