The Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s office today announced that no charges will be brought against San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette in the Miami incident. The memo which was released to the general public states that the woman underwent a rape examination that revealed no evidence as the memo stated, “no evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt any crime was committed against the complainant.”

The 49ers who believed in Kaepernick during this whole process especially head coach Jim Harbaugh as he went on record saying, “At some point there needs to be a resolution to some of jump-the-gun, witch-hunt kind of scenario that we’re seeing. I mean, the only victim in Colin’s case is Colin’s reputation.”



The 49ers who stuck by their quarterback’s side through the thick and thin recently awarded Kaepernick with a long-term deal. A deal that includes $13 million in guaranteed money, Kaepernick will now have to live up to that contract as he continues to be the face of the 49ers franchise.

In closing the memo states the following in the Case Analysis:

“The complaint’s allegations in this matter have been thoroughly investigated. However, there is no evidence to indicate that she was the victim of any crime. Because of her altered mental status the night of this incident, she was unable to provide any testimony to prove that she was sexually assaulted or the victim of any other offense. A medical examination of her body did not reveal any evidence of physical trauma. A forensic biological analysis of her rape kit swabs revealed no seminal fluid, and her toxicology tests only revealed the presence of drugs that she admitted consuming (i.e., marijuana) or drugs that were administered to her by medical professionals after she became incoherent.”

The memo went on to say:

“It is possible that the victim’s bizarre behavior at the apartment was the product of her ingesting some type of drug that was not found in the toxicology tests conducted in this case; however, in the absence of any proof that she was drugged in the first place, much less any ability to prove who drugged her or that she was drugged so that any crime could be perpetrated against her, there are no charges that could be filed against anyone for assaulting the victim. As a consequence, the Office of the State Attorney will close this investigation as “Exceptionally Cleared.”
