AUSTIN (KXAN) - The lawyers representing two UT Longhorns football players said Wednesday that their client will not be charged in connection with allegations last month from a woman who said she was sexually assaulted in a San Antonio hotel.
Perry Minton, who on Dec. 31 said that any activity between his client, linebacker Jordan Hicks, and the woman who made the allegation was consensual, told KXAN in an email that San Antonio police said they would not be filing charges. Van Hilley, the San Antonio lawyer who represents quarterback Case McCoy, said he was told the same thing.
Later Wednesday, the San Antonio Police Department's public information office said the matter remained under investigation.
Sources told KXAN and several other media outlets that Hicks and McCoy were suspended on the eve of the Alamo Bowl. On the day the allegation of sexual assault surface, Coach Mack Brown said only that he had suspended two players for "rule violations."
He did not name the players.
The woman, who is not identified, said she invited two men to her room after having drinks with them at the hotel bar on Dec. 28.
Police were called to the room just before 3 a.m. on that morning where they found the woman crying. She appeared to have bruises on her arm and leg and was taken to the hospital.
Last month, Minton pointed out that Hicks underwent a physical examination "without hesitation" at the request of police.
"These are not the actions of a young man with something to hide or one with a guilty conscience," Minton said. "These are the actions of an honest citizen eager to cooperate with law enforcement on every level in order to clear his name and that of his friend."
