Starlin Castro Will Not Be Charged With Sexual Assault

On Friday, the State Attorney's office announced that Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro will not be charged with sexual assault for an alleged incident at his apartment on Sept. 29 of last year.

"The State’s Attorney’s office in conjunction with the Chicago Police Department conducted a comprehensive review and investigation and as a result found insufficient evidence to bring forth criminal charges," state’s attorney spokeswoman Sally Daly said.

Castro's lawyer:

"We’re just happy they got it right," Kinzer said. "If it takes time, then whatever, to make sure they got it right. ... Obviously, it hasn’t been a distraction. He’s a remarkable kid. Nothing distracts him. He’s very focused.’’

Castro was hitting .360/.389/.420 heading into Friday's game against Cincinnati.
