NC State Football Players Avoid Sexual Assault Charges

According to NBC Sports, allegations of sexual assault stemming for an on-campus party in July won’t result in criminal charges for NC State Football players.

Three current players, and two that have since been dismissed were the accused. Three women who were at the party claim that they were sexually assaulted in one way or another by the players. One woman claims she may have been raped by as many as 7-10 unnamed men.

Antoine Thompson, Kevince Brown, Isaiah Moore, Erin Collins and Xavier Lyas will not have charges brought against them after an extensive criminal investigation. There is still a Title IX investigation underway, meaning the three players remaining with the program are not out of the water yet.

Thompson and Brown were dismissed from the team, while Moore, Collins, and Lyas were suspended indefinitely.

“Our office has undertaken a detailed review of the information provided from the investigation conducted by North Carolina State University police. The evidence does not support moving forward with a criminal prosecution. Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman said.

The investigation included interviews with all involved parties, statements of other witnesses, university security video footage, messages between the parties involved, and consultations with toxicology experts.

Warrants to search the cars, rooms, and phones of football players were executed as well.
