REPORT: Police Not Pursuing Sexual Assault Charges Against LSU LB Because Woman Deemed Not Credible
In the early morning hours on Monday, TMZ Sports reported that LSU linebacker Jacob Phillips was under investigation for rape after a fellow female LSU student athlete filed a report with police.
“Here’s what we know … cops were called to a Baton Rouge hospital on June 11 to respond to a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by Phillips early that morning.
18-year-old Phillips was a prized recruit for LSU — he was ranked as one of the top high school linebackers in the country.
Sources with direct knowledge of the case tell us … the accuser claims she had a previous romantic relationship with Phillips but had cut things off before the alleged incident.
The accuser told police she very clearly turned down Phillips’ sexual advancements on June 11 — but he kept going. We’re told the woman insists she repeatedly told Phillips to leave but he refused.
The woman went to the hospital a few hours later where a rape kit was administered and police took photos of bruises she claims she sustained in the alleged rape.”
Hours later, things quickly changed as the Baton Rouge Police Department decided not to pursue charges against Phillips, because the woman claiming she was raped was not deemed credible.

Like always when a woman lies about this sort of thing, she probably won’t face any charges and won’t have her name or photo mentioned publicly.
