Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Is No Longer Being Pursued by Dallas Police Department for Sexual Assault Claims

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is no longer being pursued by the Dallas police department for alleged sexual assault claims due to a lack of evidence.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has been at the center of attention for several reasons this offseason.

While Prescott’s contract situation is a hot topic, it is not nearly as serious as sexual assault claims against the Cowboys starting quarterback.

According to the Dallas Police Department, they are no longer pursuing alleged sexual assault claims against Prescott due to a lack of evidence.

Dallas Police Department Closes Sexual Assault Case Against Dak Prescott

Dallas police spokesman Kristin Lowman issued a statement on Thursday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

“An investigation was conducted, and the case is closed. Detectives determined there was insufficient evidence an offense was committed,” Lowman stated.

Prescott’s attorney Levi McCathern also issued a statement following the ruling from the Dallas police department.

“I want to thank the Dallas Police Department and Dallas County District Attorney’s Office for their thorough investigation of the allegations against Dak Prescott,” McCathern said. “As we knew they would, they found nothing in their extensive exploration of the facts that would support a criminal prosecution.”

While the sexual assault case was closed by the Dallas Police Department, this situation could continue to drag on even longer.

Prescott’s accuser, Victoria Shores, and her attorney, Yohel Zehaie, moved a countersuit against the 30-year-old quarterback from Dallas County to Collin County.

Dak Prescott Facing Countersuit in Collin County

Although Prescott has avoided the sexual assault charges in Dallas, he must now deal with a countersuit in Collin County.

Zehaie sent an email to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and explained the expected outcome with the Dallas Police Department and their countersuit case against Prescott.

“Unfortunately, it takes a while for victims to come out, and that can make it very difficult to prosecute these cases,” Zehaie said in the email. “We thank DPD for their efforts, and this is in no way an exoneration of Mr. Prescott.

“In fact, we believe that the investigation showed there were inconsistencies with Mr. Prescott’s story and are moving forward with the counterclaims we have filed. This is not the beginning of the end but the end of the beginning in what will be a long legal battle for months to come.”

Prescott has also filed a civil lawsuit against Shores and Zehaie for extortion. The Cowboys quarterback said that they asked for $100 million not to report the allegations to law enforcement.

As Zehaie mentioned, this is likely the beginning of an extensive process. While Prescott avoided any charges from the Dallas Police Department, this situation is far from resolved.

Prescott is heading into the final year of his current contract with the Cowboys. Yet it’s clear that Prescott and his attorney are prepared to fight for the quarterback’s innocence.
