NAR, I think you're right in principle: athletes, particularly those who are successful and/or white, often get undeserved legal breaks. I haven't followed this case closely, because [1] it's revolting and [2] celebrity gossip isn't my thing, but doublee is probably right that in this case Ben isn't facing criminal prosecution for other reasons.

It's also worth pointing out that sometimes celebrities get unfairly targeted by prosecutors looking to make a name for themselves. Anyway, I think you're right in general but probably not in this particular case.

I think we can all agree that Big Ben is a sleazebag.
