No Charges In Alleged Athens County Sexual Assault

Oct 29, 2013

Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn says a grand jury has decided not to file charges in an alleged sexual assault earlier this month on a downtown Athens street that was photographed and posted on line.

Blackburn says one male and one female were photographed in a sex act early October 12th.

Blackburn says investigators determined the couple, both 20-year-old Ohio University students, consumed alcohol at an Athens bar before the sex act. He says the man asked the woman whether to stop the act when a crowd formed, and she said no.

Blackburn has not released the names of the man and woman involved.
