|Georgia District Attorney to Announce Decision Monday in Roethlisberger Case
|MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A district attorney in Georgia plans to announce whether charges will be brought in a case of sexual assault accusations against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
District Attorney Fred Bright said in a statement Friday that he had reviewed all the investigation reports and will hold a news conference Monday to announce a decision.
Authorities earlier this week wrapped up their investigation into a 20-year old college student's claim that the two-time Superbowl champion sexually assaulted her early March 5 at a club in Milledgeville.
No charges have been filed. Roethlisberger's lawyer, Ed Garland, has disputed the assault claim and hired his own team to investigate.
