CBS SportsLine

Raiders first-round pick Gareon Conley will not be charged in connection to a rape allegation made against him in April, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Michael C. O’Malley, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor, issued the following statement regarding the case:

After a thorough investigation by the Cleveland Police Department, the facts and circumstances surrounding the allegations of sexual assault against Gareon Conley were presented to a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. The Grand Jury returned a No Bill on all possible charges.

“He is vindicated. He looks forward to contributing in the National Football League,” Conley’s attorney, Kevin Spellacy, told Rapoport on Monday.

Conley, 22, had vehemently denied the allegations. He told Cleveland police in May he had a consensual sexual encounter with the woman who accused him of rape and denied assaulting her, Spellacy told Rapoport.
