Rams running back Steven Jackson recently was accused of assaulting the mother of his child in March 2009, at a time when she was nine months pregnant.
According to TMZ.com, authorities in Las Vegas will not pursue charges, based on a lack of evidence.
It doesn’t mean that Jackson didn’t do it — it only means that prosecutors fear that, in the end, it will be difficult if not impossible to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The alleged victim, Supriya Harris, could still file a civil lawsuit against Jackson. In civil court, a much lower standard of proof applies, as O.J. Simpson once learned.
