Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley was accused of sexual assault by a woman in Cleveland shortly before being drafted in the first round last year and strongly denied the accusation before authorities opted not to pursue charges against him.

Conley’s reportedly still dealing with other legal issues related to the matter, however. TMZ reports that Conley faces a civil lawsuit from his accuser.

The suit contends Conley “sexually assaulted, battered and raped” the woman at a Cleveland hotel after meeting her in a bar earlier in the night. The woman claims she “sustained serious physical, psychological, emotional and mental injuries” as a result of Conley’s actions and is seeking an undisclosed amount of compensatory and punitive damages. Conley’s management group and the hotel are also defendants in the lawsuit.

Injuries limited Conley to two games after he was drafted with the 24th overall pick last year.

  1. This dude has zero injury questions coming out of college, yet missed pretty much the whole season. Raiders really need him to play the like the top 10 prospect he was expected to be. Oh and nobody cares about a lying gold digger

  2. My Raider’s secondary here the last few years has been looking like a halfway house..

    Sean Smith

    Im kinda glad we stole Worley here recently but even though they need a LT of the future i hope the Raiders still draft a decent CB earlier rather than later.

  3. Gruden hasn’t cut him yet? Seems like he’s running a real tight ship over there..

    Yeah but more importantly Josh Allen tweeted bad words when he was 14 years old. Much more offensive than this.

    Well considering Josh Allen actually did what he was accused of and Conley did not, I can see where it would be more offensive. However digging up tweets of a high school kid is almost as low as trying to lie to police for a pay day.

  5. Maybe he can be mentored by Worley and Aldon Smith. Man, the Raiders place no value of having players of leadership or character. WheN was the last time they won a playoff game? Hmmmmmm.

  6. Despite the dire pre-draft predictions (which is why he fell out of the top 10) no criminal charges were ever filed. Conley has maintained that witnesses and surveillance tapes back him up so I doubt he has much worry about if that’s the case.

    However, I’m concerned about whether he’ll be able to contribute as I had hoped if these lingering injuries keep up. He’s certainly much needed in the secondary.
