No charges filed against Roethlisberger

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not be charged with sexaul assault after an incident with a 20-year-old outside a Georgia nightclub last month.

The accusations made by the 20-year-old female proved to not be enough evidence to convict Roethlisberger, District Attorney Fred Bright said, according to Espn.

A letter from the accuser's lawyer also said that she did not want to press charges, according to Espn.

The investigation showed that the accuser was highly intoxicated that night. She went to the hospital after the alleged incident, where the doctor examining her could not prove that a sexaul assault had taken place, according to USA Today.

Roethlisberger was investigated to the fullest extent of the law and was not given special treatment because of his celebrity status, according to USA Today.
