No charges will be brought against Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley, a first-round pick who was accused of sexual assault by a woman just before the NFL draft.
Here’s the official release, via Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group:
On April 9, Conley met a woman and they went back to his hotel room in Cleveland. She accused him of having sex with her after she told him to stop. Witnesses said Conley did nothing wrong. Conley maintained the allegations were completely false.
The Raiders believed in Conley’s innocence and used a first-round pick on the talented cornerback from Ohio State, even though the investigation was ongoing. Now that he has been cleared, Conley can move on with his NFL career.
