Sexual Assault Charges Laid Against Former NHL Player by Multiple Victims

Mike Ribeiro, a former NHL player, was arrested and charged in Texas last year with allegedly sexually assaulting two women in the summer of 2021.

Ribiero was charged with two counts of sexual assault on April 13th, 2022 in Franklin County, Texas, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Ribeiro allegedly assaulted two women on June 23rd, 2021, “using his finger in his assault of one woman and his sexual organ on the other,” according to court documents.

According to TSN’s lead investigative reporter Rick Westhead, Ribeiro is now facing an additional charge of attempted sexual assault and will have his case heard in August.

Needless to say, this is a serious criminal offense, and Ribeiro faces prison time if convicted.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Ribeiro has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman.
Ribeiro was sued in 2012 by his family’s former nanny, who claimed he sexually assaulted her while she was caring for his own children.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
