DA to announce decision in Roethlisberger case

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A district attorney in central Georgia
will announce if he plans to file charges in a case of sexual
assault claims against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and Ohio
native Ben Roethlisberger.

District Attorney Fred Bright says he's reviewed the
investigation reports and will hold a news conference today to
announce his decision.

Milledgeville police Chief Woodrow Blue said last week that his
department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have wrapped up
their investigation into a college student's claim that
Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her at a club.

It's the second time in a year Roethlisberger has been accused
of sexual misconduct. He also faces a lawsuit filed by a woman who
says he raped her in 2008 at a Lake Tahoe hotel and casino, an
allegation he denies.
