DA Declines ASU Rape Prosecution PDF Print

24th District Attorney Jerry Wilson is declining to prosecute a second reported rape case involving ASU student-athletes. In a release yesterday, Wilson said, "The District Attorney's Office has finished its review of the allegations involving the above-named individuals and has declined prosecution," that from an off-campus incident in September. Wilson previously declined prosecution in another case from April. Both students in the September case were found responsible for all charges by a University Conduct Board back in October, but the case was remanded for a new hearing because of reported “procedural error.” In April, the review found one of the men was responsible for sex offenses and other counts in the incident and was suspended him from campus for eight semesters. The two accused in the September 2011 incident were also among five men accused of sexually assaulting and raping another female ASU student in an off-campus incident in April of 2011. The alleged victim of the April 2011 incident reported the incident to the Watauga County Sheriff's Office in September last year, but the district attorney declined to prosecute the case, citing a lack of evidence.
