Investigators from the Miami-Dade State Attorney's office announced there will be no charges filed against QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Ricardo Lockette, WR Quinton Patton on Thursday afternoon. There was no clear evidence according to a spokesperson.

"No charges, no indication that a criminal act was committed," said Ed Griffith of the State Attorney's Office. "She was alleging that she may have been the victim of a sexual assault, and there was no evidence."

Initially, a woman was taken to the hospital in Miami after being allegedly sexually assaulted in early April. She was unconscious and unsure how she ended up in a hospital the following morning. The report indicates that there were no drugs or any evidence that Kaepernick or others had foul play in April.

In the past, Kaepernick proclaimed his innocence on his Twitter account when the initial reports were released by TMZ.

(1/3) The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I’ve seen are completely wrong. They make things up about me that never happened.

(2/3) I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up.

(3/3) I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced.

Kaepernick signed an extension with the 49ers through the 2020 season which secures him with the team for seven seasons. Since the "suspicious incident", Kaepernick has kept a low profile throughout the offseason outside of the extension being signed.

With no charges filed on anyone including Lockette and Patton, Kaepernick and the 49ers can go back to focusing on football.
