ANDthe case of Trevor Bauer seems to be coming to an end. The Dodgers pitcher will not be criminally charged on charges of sexual assault, as reported by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The ruling in favor of Bauer concludes with a process of more than five months that began with the accusations of a San Diego woman, who requested a restraining order against the Los Angeles player in June 2021.
The conclusion reached by Prosecutor’s Office was given after reviewing the evidence of the process which did not give beyond a reasonable doubt.
Although the situation for Bauer does not end here and the player is still may face disciplinary action in the MLB, as the Commissioner Rob Manfred may apply any sanction under the domestic violence regulations. Bauer was on administrative leave for the 2021 season.
“The investigation against Bauer is ongoing and we will make further comments at an appropriate time,” the league said in a statement.
For its part, Bauer published a video on YouTube of more than five minutes in which he denies the accusations made by the woman and blamed the media for not reporting on the matter.
The Los Angeles Dodgers did not comment. and will remain so until the end of the league’s investigation.
