Cowboys’ Dak Prescott won’t face charges for alleged assault

Dak Prescott

Seven years after a woman alleges that Dak Prescott sexually assaulted her, Dallas police announced Thursday that they will not pursue charges against the Cowboys quarterback.

An investigation determined there wasn’t enough evidence against Prescott to proceed with the case.

“I want to thank the Dallas Police Department and Dallas County District Attorneys’ office for their thorough investigation of the allegations against Dak Prescott,” the quarterback’s attorney, Levi McCathern, said in a statement. “As we knew they would, they found nothing in their extensive exploration of the facts that would support a criminal prosecution.”

The news comes the same week that the accuser’s attorney, Yoel Zehaie, filed a motion to dismiss Prescott’s lawsuit against the accuser. Prescott is seeking $1 million in response to what his attorney’s claim was an extortion attempt on the woman’s behalf. They maintain that the woman asked for $100 million to drop the sexual assault allegation.

The women’s attorney also filed a countersuit in civil court.

McCathern said in a statement on Thursday, “We are confident that at the end of law enforcement’s investigation into the extortion case that they will find the accuser and her attorneys just as guilty as Dak is innocent.

“As I have said from the beginning, Dak is a great football player, and an even better human. He would never assault any woman. These false accusations were brought up 7 years after the alleged events for one reason and one reason only — to line the pockets of the accuser and her attorneys. Their behavior is an affront to all the true survivors of sexual assault.”

Zehaie told WFAA-TV in Dallas this week that Prescott’s lawsuit “was meant to silence his sexual assault victim” and “is in violation of Texas’s Anti Slapp Statute which prohibits different forms of retaliatory lawsuits.”

Zehaie added in a statement on Thursday, according to ESPN, “We are proceeding with our counterclaims, even though Levi McCathern is using every tactic to prevent us from going to court.”
