Philadelphia Eagles’ Agholor won’t face sex assault charge

    Philadelphia’s top prosecutor says no charges will be filed against Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor following an investigation into allegations of a sex assault at a strip club.

    District Attorney Seth Williams said Monday there was insufficient evidence to warrant any charges.

    Police had received an allegation that Agholor was involved in a sex assault June 9 at the Cheerleader’s Gentlemen’s Club.

    The district attorney said a joint investigation was conducted by his office’s sex assault unit and the police department’s Special Victims Unit.

    The 23-year-old Agholor played at Southern California and was a 2015 first-round draft pick for the Eagles. His lawyer has said Agholor was not involved in any criminal conduct whatsoever.
