A Cuyahoga County grand jury has decided not to indict a former Ohio State University football player who was accused of rape earlier this year.
Gareon Conley, a former cornerback at Ohio State who was drafted by the Oakland Raiders days after the allegations came to light, was accused of raping a woman at the Westin Hotel on St. Clair Avenue on April 9.
Police gathered information from Conley’s accuser — a 23-year-old woman — at the hotel the morning of the alleged rape.
In a statement, Conley called the allegations "completely false."
The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office issued this statement Monday afternoon:
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.
