No charges in alleged sex assault near Ohio campus
ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - A
prosecutor says a grand jury decided not to charge anyone in an alleged sexual
assault near Ohio University that was photographed
and filmed by witnesses.
A man and woman were
photographed in a sex act along a street near the southern Ohio campus in the wee hours
of Oct. 12. Explicit photos of them were circulated via social media, and the
woman later told police she was sexually assaulted.
In a Monday statement,
the Athens County prosecutor says a grand
jury determined there wasn't probable cause for charges.
The prosecutor says
investigators determined the couple, both 20-year-old students, had alcohol
from a bar before the sex act. He says the man asked the woman whether to stop
the act when a crowd formed, and she said no.
