Drew Doughty won’t be charged with date-rape

As Linda Deutsch has reported, Drew Doughty will not be charged with date-rape in an alleged sexual assault case.

Here’s what the L.A. Times wrote on June 19:

Sgt. Robert Higgins said the 25-year-old woman told police she met Doughty at a bar near the Hermosa Beach Pier on March 1. The two went to Doughty’s home, where she turned down a proposition in front of several teammates.

They took a cab to her home, where she accused Doughty of raping her.

The woman reported the incident to police the same day.

Higgins said detectives asked her to call the hockey player while they listened, but she refused. He said the woman has been “less than cooperative” and that the district attorney’s office and police have “found credibility problems.”

On Wednesday, the District Attorney’s Office of Los Angeles Count released a report where they stated their belief that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

“Drew has consistently maintained that the allegations were baseless and unwarranted,” said Doughty’s attorney, Craig Renetsky. “Charges were never warranted in this case.”
