CLEVELAND (AP) - Authorities say Ohio State football recruit Chris Carter won't face criminal charges stemming from his arrest last week on an allegation he fondled a girl while pretending to measure her for an ROTC uniform.
Carter is a senior offensive lineman at John F. Kennedy High School in Cleveland. The 15-year-old girl told police Carter took her to a room behind the school's auditorium and tried to pull up her bra. He was arrested on suspicion of sexual imposition and spent a night in jail.
Cleveland spokeswoman Maureen Harper said in a statement Monday a full review found there wasn't enough evidence of sexual contact or conduct.
Carter's attorney Harvey Bruner says the city's conclusion verifies what he has said about there being insufficient evidence. He says Carter looks forward to attending Ohio State in the fall.
