Reisinger and Michael P. Gillespie, Castro has denied the allegations through a statement:

"We are aware of certain allegations that have been made against our client, Starlin Castro. We have thoroughly investigated this matter, and we are confident that these allegations are baseless. Given the sensitive nature of this matter, we cannot comment any further."

The initial police report, says that on Sept. 29 Castro sexual assaulted a women after drinking with her at a night club. The woman claims that after passing out, she woke up to see her attacker, Castro, sexual assaulting her.
