US prosecutors have stated that football star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face charges over a rape allegation.
Ronaldo was accused of rape by Kathryn Maryoga who stated that the incident happened at a Las Vegas Hotel in 2009.
According to her, the case which she decided to re-open in 2018 was settled out of court in 2010.
According to Las Vegas prosecutors, Kathryn Maryoga’s claims could not “be proven beyond reasonable doubt”.
The Clark County District Attorney’s office stated that the assault reported by the victim in 2009 was not detailed because she couldn’t state where it had happened or who the attacker was. This prevented police from being able “to conduct any meaningful investigation”.
The investigation of the alleged rape was done again by the Las Vegas police upon request by the Maryoga.
The Clark County’s statement added: “Based upon a review of information at this time, the allegations of sexual assault against Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Therefore, no charges will be forthcoming.”
