Attorney for Texas LB Jordan Hicks Says No Charges Will Be Filed, but Sa Police Say That’s Not the Case

Austin attorney Perry Minton, who is representing Jordan Hicks, a member of the Texas football team, released a statement this afternoon saying no sexual assault charges would be filed against Hicks.

Hicks and fellow junior Case McCoy were sent home a day early from the Alamo Bowl in light of a San Antonio police investigation — a 21-year-old woman told police she had been raped by one of the members of the Texas football team, while another sat in her hotel room, after sharing drinks at a hotel bar and inviting them back to her room in the early hours of Dec. 28.

“I just got off the phone with the San Antonio police department detective in charge of the investigation of my client, and he has informed me that no charges will be brought against Jordan Hicks or anyone else in this matter … .The investigation is closed,” Minton said in a statement.

“Additionally, I have spoken to Mr. Hicks and his family, and they are understandably relieved. Mr. Hicks will be returning to the University of Texas once school resumes.”

In wake of Minton’s statement, the San Antonio police department issued a statement of its own, saying nothing conclusive can be drawn yet.

“In light of the media inquiries into the allegation of a sexual assault that took place in the early morning hours of December 28, 2012, in the downtown area, the San Antonio Police Department’s SVU (Special Victims Unit) is still reviewing the case.”
