LA prosecutors won’t pursue criminal charges against former USC football players accused of sexual assault – Los Angeles Times

Prosecutors in Los Angeles will not pursue criminal charges against former USC football players Osa Masina and Don Hill, who in July were accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman.

In a charge evaluation sheet released Tuesday, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office determined, “There is insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Masina is scheduled to stand trial in Salt Lake City, stemming from an alleged incident involving the same woman that she says took place less than two weeks after she said she was assaulted in Los Angeles. Masina has plead not guilty to charges of first-degree rape and two charges of forcible sodomy. That trial is scheduled to begin June 26. Hill was not involved in the allegations in Utah.

In declining to pursue charges, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office cited a lack of physical evidence or toxicology reports because of the delay between the alleged incident and the woman speaking with police.
