The Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII championship against the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31. Retiring, controversial Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis played a large part in the victory, but some critics detracted from his success by reminding fans of the athlete's double-murder charge.

Lewis has long been haunted by a January 2000 fight that resulted in an indictment on murder and aggravated-assault charges. In a plea agreement he pled guilty to obstruction of justice in exchange for testimony against two other defendants.



















Others reminded critics that Lewis was not convicted of murder, and was instead paid heavily for his involvement in what the court determined were self-defense killings.
