Just my opinion ,but there will be no new fresh start. It is bad enough with the 22 civil cases still pending, but it only takes one to prompt the Grand Jury to consider criminal charges. And that is a totally a bigger day.
A grand jury is generally a pretty low bar. If prosecution can't get past that, then it should go away pretty quickly. Watson will be willing to pass out a little money to put it behind him, and any of the women not willing to settle are probably being foolish.
