Draft prospect Con­ley de­nies rape re­port; no charges filed

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

CLEVE­LAND | An at­tor­ney for former Ohio State foot­ball star Gareon Con­ley says the player de­nies an ac­cu­sa­tion made in a po­lice re­port that he sex­u­ally as­saulted a woman. No charges have been filed.

Spokes­woman Kath­leen Caf­frey of the Cuya­hoga County Pros­e­cu­tor’s Of­fice says the April 9 en­counter is still be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by po­lice.

A Cleve­land po­lice re­port re­leased Tues­day says the 23-year-old woman told of­fi­cers that Con­ley sex­u­ally as­saulted her in the bath­room of a ho­tel room. Po­lice spokes­woman Jen­nifer Ci­ac­cia says in­ves­ti­ga­tors are mak­ing ar­range­ments to in­ter­view Con­ley, one of the top de­fen­sive prospects in the up­com­ing NFL draft.

Con­ley’s at­tor­ney, Kevin Spel­lacy, told Cleve­land.com that the ac­cu­sa­tions are “ridicu­lous and lu­di­crous.” He says the woman who made the claims is “an op­por­tunist.” He did not im­me­di­ately re­turn mes­sages left by The Associated Press.
