The Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo will escape a charge for rape in the United States, for lack of sufficient evidence. An ex-model accuses him of having raped her in 2009 in a hotel room in Las Vegas.
The “reasonable doubt” prevailed. The US justice decided, Monday, July 22, lack of evidence, not to charge for rape the Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
A former American model, Kathryn Mayorga, 35, accused the five-time Golden Ball of having raped her in 2009 in a hotel room in Las Vegas.
“Based on the available information,” these “charges can not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” says a statement from Clark County Attorney in Nevada. “Despite the fact that nine years have passed, the police have investigated his allegations”, but these could not be proven. “As a result, no prosecution will be initiated,” wrote the prosecutor.
