Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo will not face criminal charges stemming from rape allegations in 2009, prosecutors announced Monday.
According to a news release from the Clark County District Attorney’s office in Las Vegas, authorities have declined to bring the charges against Ronaldo due to insufficient evidence.
Ronaldo was accused of raping a woman in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009. Kathryn Mayorga filed a lawsuit against Ronaldo in September alleging that the Portuguese soccer player raped her and went public with her accusation in a detailed story in German outlet Der Spiegel.
Ronaldo dismissed the accusations casually over Instagram Live before officially releasing statements from his representation. In 2010, Ronaldo and Mayorga reached a civil settlement in 2010, which paid her $375,000.
