Although it wasn't an easy choice, Chesterfield Football Club has signed and welcomed footballer (or what Americans call soccer player) Ched Evans with open arms. Evans was convicted on rape charges in 2011 and served three years in prison from 2012-2015. But his conviction was overturned in April. 

Chesterfield wrote on its official website:

Chesterfield Football Club are delighted to announce that Wales international striker Ched Evans, formerly of Sheffield United, Norwich City and Manchester City, will be joining the club on July 1.

Now Evans' getting a second chance at a soccer career — but it's second chance that many are split on. The footballer is facing a retrial scheduled for October. Does he deserve to have another chance just yet?

Some fans are happy he's getting another shot and feel like, based on the appeal in April, he's already served time for a crime he didn't commit. Others believe the fate of his career should wait until AFTER the retrial's verdict. Also, many feel it's beyond disrespectful to the once 19-year-old victim he allegedly raped. 

The retrial will further present new evidence for the defense. But if found guilty, Chesterfield will have to review and most likely drop Evans as a player. Hence, isn't it just better to wait for the verdict before allowing him to play again?
