The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office today has charged San Francisco 49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks with misdemeanor sexual battery. The incident occurred on December 15, 2014, at former 49ers DE Ray McDonald’s house.
McDonald who is no longer with the team was also indicted on one count of rape of an intoxicated person.

The two incidents although separate occurred on the same night against the same victim. 49ers GM Trent Baalke said that Brooks will not play in Saturday’s game against the Denver Broncos and has been sent back home to California.
Brooks faces a maximum sentence of six months in jail and will be arraigned at a later date.
“The organization is aware that a misdemeanor charge has been filed against Ahmad Brooks stemming from a December 2014 matter,” Baalke said in a statement. “We take any charge against a member of this organization seriously and are in communication with the NFL. Ahmad is returning home to California and will not participate in Saturday’s game.”
With Brooks’ future with the team in limbo, you can be sure the team will now add another OLB to their 53-man roster as Brooks will likely go on the suspended/reserve list if found guilty.
