Ben Roethlisberger -- No Charges

4/12/2010 2:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0305_ben_roethlisberger_getty_95099599_bn.jpg Ben Roethlisberger will not be charged for sexual assault over an alleged incident on March 5 in Milledgeville, Georgia.

According to prosecutor Fred Bright -- the alleged victim wrote a letter on March 17, in which she stated that she no longer wanted to pursue the case.

During his investigation, Bright claims "everyone" agreed that both Ben and his accuser were highly intoxicated on March 5 when they went into the bathroom at Capital City nightclub.

Bright said there are still "significant questions about what occurred" in the bathroom ... but Ben will not be prosecuted.

Bright said after the alleged incident, the woman went to a local hospital where a doctor and two nurses examined her and found "a superficial laceration," bruising and bleeding in the genital area.

Bright said the woman told doctors "a boy kinda raped me" -- but Bright said the doctor could not definitively say if the woman's injuries were the result of a sexual assault.

Bright said Ben initially claimed that the woman fell and hit her head in the bathroom -- but after she arrived at the hospital, doctors found no trauma to the woman's head. After that, Bright says Ben's agent stepped in and said the quarterback wouldn't answer questions with an attorney present.

the white man gets away with a crime again....over and over... and over again



im telling you this much...anyone who gets repeatedly accused of the same crime over and over again..has to have some sort of truth to it..



i guess only when it gets to the point where he'll murder a chick in the process is when he'll be reprimanded for it.

Where are all of the haters now!!! I knew this case was bogus when it first broke. Ben should sue for defamation of character. BTW-I am a woman so it is not a testerone thing.

If he was a black sports star, he'd be in prison already. I remember how people treated Kobe Brian, although the girl had three types of sperm in her. @ hahaha

A bona fide sicko on the loose. A true woman abusing, bullying jock who has gotten his way his whole life---his saga is not yet complete.



It will only get worse from here---may take a few more years, but without conviction or counseling, this dude isnt done just yet.



Very mixed up young man this one is. Enablers and tagger ons, be careful.

That's right Jackie. Because all women who are raped take it to the courts. No rape victim would worry that the defense attorney will destroy her character. Obviously Big Ben's lawyer would never do that to her unless she deserved it. Plus, women who have really been raped would never have a past that could be torn apart and capitalized on. They are all virgins who study all day.
And Big Ben would never rape a woman. He's just unlucky that he constantly gets wrongly accused, though most rich, entitled athletes don't. Golly! That's just tough luck. And the fact that he was drunk in a woman's bathroom...well, that's just normal behavior. It's a good thing these girls keep dropping their accusations. Sure, he should sue.

He provided alcohol to someone who was under-aged to drink. He had his associate escort her back to somewhere private and then followed. She was injured and then harassed by his legal time and the press. It is no wonder she wanted no part of pressing charges. He has ruined her life and he gets off free. I hope the Steelers let him go. He is not worth the damage to their reputation. If he was not a wealthy man he would have been charged and the girl would not have be victimized twice to get justice.
