Police nearly have completed the investigation regarding the claims of sexual assault against Packers cornerback Brandon Underwood. According to Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the case will be given to Sauk County District Attorney Patricia Barrett on Tuesday.
It’s believed that Barrett will make a decision on the case by Friday.
The fact that the women initially claimed that they were assaulted by multiple players could lead to a decision that the evidence will not meet the very high standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
“That, obviously, is somewhat troubling when you have such a big
discrepancy in the initial statement than what they claimed shortly into
the investigation,” Lake Delton, Wisconsin Police Chief Tom Dorner said Monday, per Charles Davis of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
In other words, Underwood likely won’t be facing charges. That said, the women still could file a civil lawsuit against him, given that a much lower standard of proof applies.
