Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will learn on Monday whether he will face sexual assault charges in Georgia as District Attorney Fred Bright released a statement Friday that he has reviewed all the investigation reports and will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. ET Monday.
With much speculation that evidence in the case is only hearsay, the chances are strong that Roethlisberger will not be charged and it appears that will be the case.
According to a report by ESPN this evening, Roethlisberger will not face charges, sources confirmed to ESPN’s Kelly Naqi.
During the investigation, Steelers ownership did not come out in support of Roethlisberger, expressing deep concern over the situation.
Starting safety Ryan Clark was one of the few players to publicly come out in support of Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger has not attended off-season workouts but will be in attendance for the Steelers first OTA practice on April 19th.
