According to Cleveland Country District Attorney Greg Mashburn, Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson will not face charges over a rape accusation. Mashburn cited issues with the account of the accuser during a Thursday afternoon press conference.
The redshirt sophomore, Anderson leads Oklahoma with 960 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns to go along with 285 receiving yards and five touchdowns in 2017.
A police investigation began on Dec. 4 following an accusation of rape from a former OU student; a protective order was filed the same day. Anderson and his attorney denied the accusation. Following Thursday’s decision, Anderson’s attorney released the following statement.
