Insufficient Evidence For Pablo Sandoval Arrest

In early June, the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department began an investigation into sexual assault allegations made against Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

Thursday, it was announced that no charges will be filed. Antonio Gonzalez:

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office completed its investigation Thursday and forwarded the case to the district attorney’s office. No charges are expected.

A 21-year-old woman who lives in Santa Cruz County filed a sexual assault complaint against the All-Star third baseman June 1. The woman told investigators she met a small group of people in downtown Santa Cruz and went to a resort in nearby Aptos, where she says she was assaulted. Sandoval was contacted at the resort by detectives and cooperated in the investigation.

Similar accusations were made against Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro last September, and just as in the Sandoval case, there was insufficient evidence for local prosecutors to file any charges.
