Ronaldo will not face charges over alleged rape

Backgrid

She has a lawsuit pending against Ronaldo in USA court in Las Vegas that accused Ronaldo or those working for him of conspiracy, defamation, breach of contract and coercion and fraud.

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face sexual assault charges as the alleged victim's claims could not "be proven beyond reasonable doubt", according to USA prosecutors.

Police were unable to conduct an investigation at the time because she declined to say who assaulted her or where it occurred, the office said in a statement, but Mayorga contacted police in August of a year ago to ask that the case be reopened, at which point she named Ronaldo as the alleged assailant.

The Associated Press generally does not name people who say they are victims of sexual assault. Without knowing the identity of the perpetrator or the location of the crime, detectives were unable to search for and impound vital forensic evidence.

The incident was alleged to have taken place in 2009 in a Las Vegas hotel room but Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson decided that Kathryn Mayorga's claim could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Based upon a review of the information presented at this time, the allegations of sexua assault against Cristiano Ronaldo can not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

In August 2018, the woman contacted Las Vegas Police once again, naming Ronaldo as her assaulter, and asking that the investigation be reopened.

Authorities added that the investigation over the past year has not brought up any new evidence that would cause the 34-year-old to be charged with a crime. 'Therefore, no charges will be forthcoming'.

"V and Cristiano Ronaldo, through their respective attorneys, eventually reached a civil settlement related to this matter in 2010".
