49ers receiver Michael Crabtree won’t face any charges from the sexual assault investigation concerning him.
Here’s what San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon said in his statement announcing the decision Friday night:
“The San Francisco Police Department – Special Victims Unit completed and submitted a thorough investigation of the allegations against Michael Crabtree. Following a review of all the evidence, my office has determined that no charges will be filed against Michael Crabtree at this time.”
The news comes a week after San Francisco police announced it was looking into a rape accusation against Crabtree.The alleged incident reportedly occurred at a San Francisco hotel in the hours following the Niners’ divisional round win over the Packers.
A few days ago, it was reported those allegations weren’t holding up as the SFPD’s investigation developed. Crabtree reportedly was cooperative with police throughout the entire process.
Update: 49ers GM Trent Baalke has issued a statement:
“We are pleased to learn of the San Francisco District Attorney’s announcement following a thorough review of the matter. Michael and the team can now put this behind us and move forward.”
