Charges Dropped Against Mankato Players




Four Minnesota State Mankato hockey players were exonerated today when the police decided that no charges would be filed against them after being accused on sexual assualt last February.

Here is thefirst article I wrote about the case, as well as the player's side of the story, and a follow-up story in April.

Is there some kind of subtle message in the fact that you used a picture from an article about Michael Jackson being freed from all charges?

What about the dope some of them were using? Did that get swept under the rug?

It was swept under the rug in the sense that the police don't really care.

The most they could have done is charged the owner of the house(in this case, Austin Sutter) for possession, which is a minor offense. I'm sure they decided it wasn't worth their time to push the issues, or decided to drop the charge since the players cooperated with the investigation.

Looks like drugs could be an issue with some guys in Mankato.
