San Diego State has disclosed the findings of its investigations into the allegations made against former Bills punter Matt Araiza.
Araiza has seen all criminal charges dropped after he was reported to have participated in the gang rape of a 17-year-old girl, with prosecutors revealing he had already left a party when the incident took place. Furthermore, they claim there’s nothing to suggest that the sex wasn’t consensual as there’s video footage.
Despite the above, there’s still a civil suit pending.
SDSU has reported its findings to ESPN, revealing that none of the students named are part of an investigation.
“While the university cannot provide specific information related to its student disciplinary proceedings and investigations, or specific information related to student records, it can confirm that none of the former students named in the civil suit are now the subject of an active investigation,” the school said in a statement. “In addition, they are not currently enrolled, active students or affiliated with any athletics activities.
“SDSU reserves the right to reinstate investigations based on new developments.”
Araiza was selected by the Bills in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL Draft but was released two days after the civil suit was filed. The 23-year-old has said he is considering filing a lawsuit of his own, which could be the case if the pending one isn’t withdrawn.
Dan Gilleon, an attorney for the woman in question, has branded the lack of findings in the university’s investigations “meaningless” as his client was not a student there and the alleged incident took place off-campus.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
