Michael Irvin will not face sexual assault charges after Florida investigation

Prosecutors have declined to file sexual assault charges against former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin, due to a lack of evidence, according to the Broward County (Fla.) State Attorney’s Office.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver was accused of sexual assault in March when a 27-year-old woman claimed that Irvin drugged and raped her on March 22 at a hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The sexual assault case was transferred from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department to the State Attorney’s Office in June.

Irvin, 51, vehemently denied the accusations, calling the woman’s claims “heinous” and “the most difficult period my family and I have ever had to endure.”

“Nothing happened, period,” Irvin said in June, via ABC. “There was no sexual contact whatsoever.”
