Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor became the subject of a sexual assault investigation in Philadelphia earlier this month after a dancer at a strip club accused him of raping her and Agholor’s attorney quickly issued a statement proclaiming confidence that his client would not be charged with a crime.

That decision is now in the hands of Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams’ office. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross told Philadelphia Magazine on Thursday night that their investigative work has been sent to the D.A. for review before a decision is made about charges. The D.A.’s office had no comment.

“We’ve been in touch with the investigators, but I can’t comment on the progress of the investigation,” Agholor’s attorney Fortunato “Fred” Perri said. “It’s always difficult when something like this happens. [Agholor] has been staying close with his family and doing the best he possibly can.”

Reports at the time of the allegation against Agholor had him and the dancer in a dispute over money before the allegation was leveled. Agholor’s teammates Connor Barwin and Fletcher Cox were allegedly with him at the strip club on the day in question and both issued statements saying they had no knowledge of anything that might have transpired.

  1. These cases have to be the worst to investigated, either you are going to be disgusted with the perpetrator(right fully so), or you will be disgusted with the person lying and trying to ruin someone’s life because their feelings were hurt.

  2. Either way.. Hopefully these guys see it’s just best to not put yourselves in these situations. Even if found innocent this will always stick with him.. Probably should’ve just went to Dave and Busters.

  3. When a guy who likes to have sex with strippers becomes a highly paid professional athlete, he should curtail the sex with strippers for a while, consensual or otherwise. That’s free legal advice for ya. Nelly.
