Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not be charged with sexual assault, the District Attorney Fred Bright announced today.
Bright said the investigationâ€”carried out by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Milledgeville police departmentâ€”did not yield sufficient evidence to bring charges against Roethlisbeger.
Roethlisberger was accused of sexual assault by a 20-year-old female college student who claimed the abuse occurred at a club on Mar. 5 in Milledgeville.
This is the second time that Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault.
While not criminally charged in either case, Roethlisberger could still be disciplined by the NFL.
He will meet with commissioner Roger Goodell later this week.
