According to the Cleveland Police Department, the rape allegation against Oakland Raiders CB Gareon Conley is headed to a grand jury to determine whether to indict the 22-year-old rookie.
Conley, who recently signed his rookie deal with the Raiders, was accused of rape by a woman in Cleveland shortly before the NFL Draft in April.
According to NFL.COM:
Conley told Cleveland police in May he had a consensual sexual encounter with the woman who accused him of rape and denied assaulting her, his attorney, Kevin Spellacy, told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Spellacy added that Conley has cooperated “100 percent” with the investigation.
Conley was expected to be drafted in the top 10, but after the rape allegation, he ended up falling to the Raiders at 24.
