Underwood Case To Go To The D.A. Tuesday


The case that started over the weekend involving Packers CB Brandon Underwood is going to go to the District Attorney on Tuesday according to the National Football Post.

Packers cornerback Brandon Underwood ought to have a very good idea of where he stands with the law in Sauk County, Wis., by the end of the week. Lake Delton police are expected to hand over their findings to the Sauk County District Attorney on Tuesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, following their investigation into claims by two women that they were sexually assaulted by a Green Bay Packers player in the early morning hours Saturday. Underwood has been identified as the player in question, although authorities have yet to publicly name him. Lake Delton Police Chief Tom Dorner said he expects district attorney Patricia A. Barrett to make a decision on charges, if any, by Friday in the resort area in south central Wisconsin. Per the report, Dorner said the D.A. might decline to press charges based on the available evidence. “This person is a person of interest,” Dorner said. “He admitted to sexual contact and activity. The women said it was a sexual assault; he says it was consensual.”

Sounds like from above this is going to be a simple case of ‘he said/she said.’ Underwood claims the sex was consensual, the woman pushing the charges says it was not. Now it’s going to be up to the D.A. to see if there is enough evidence to push the case forward, much like the Ben Roethlisberger case about a month ago.
