Charges will not be filed for alleged sexual assault


Charleston – Charges for an alleged sexual assault will not be filed.


The Coles County State's Attorney says based on a review of evidence and inconsistency with witness statements, he has decided there is not enough to support filing criminal charges. In April Charleston Police were investigating after a woman said she was raped by multiple men at a house party.


Police had several suspects identified in the case. However, after further investigation no charges will be filed
