Ben Roethlisberger will not be charged for sexual assault stemming from an incident in Milledgeville, GA earlier this year.
During a news conference moments ago, Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright said during a meeting with Ben’s alleged victim 10 days ago, she said she did not want to pursue the matter any further.
Bright said both Ben and the woman were highly intoxicated when they went into the bathroom at Capital City nightclub — where the alleged incident occurred.
Bright said there are still “significant questions about what occurred” in the bathroom … but Ben will not be prosecuted.
Bright said after the alleged incident, Ben’s victim went to a local hospital where an emergency room doctor and two nurses examined her, and found “a superficial laceration,” bruising and bleeding in the genital area.
Bright said the woman told doctors “a boy kinda raped me” — but Bright said the doctor could not say if the woman’s injuries were caused by sexual assault.
Bright said Ben initially said the alleged victim fell and hit her head in the bathroom — but doctors found no trauma to the woman’s head. After that, Bright says Ben’s agent stepped in and said the quarterback wouldn’t answer questions with an attorney present.
