Cristiano Ronaldo won’t face criminal charges after a woman accused him of raping her at his Palms Hotel & Casino penthouse suite in 2009.
Prosecutor Steve Wolfson said in a statement Monday that after reviewing a new police investigation, he determined that sexual assault accusations can’t be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and no charges will be filed.

Attorneys for Ronaldo’s accuser, former model and schoolteacher Kathryn Mayorga, did not immediately respond to telephone, text and email messages.
