No charges to be filed after Oregon rape allegation
No criminal charges will be filed in the wake of a woman’s allegation that she was gang-raped by three University of Oregon basketball players. The woman told police that after drinking she was raped by redshirt transfer Brandon Austin -- the subject of a separate sexual assault investigation in Rhode Island -- and sophomores Dominic Artis and Damyean Dotson, one of the team’s leading scorers this past season. The woman acknowledged that she had been drinking, that she had trouble remembering some of the events clearly, and that she may have had consensual sex with one of the men the next morning -- all factors that played in the decision not to file charges. “This case, given the state of the evidence the way it is now, is closed,” said Patricia Perlow, the chief deputy district attorney for Lane County. Perlow said that if new information surfaces, that decision could be reconsidered via No charges to be filed after Oregon rape allegation | FOX Sports on MSN.
