KDKA, the CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh, reported Roethlisberger told police and others in his party he did not have sexual intercourse with the young woman.
Sources told KDKA Roethlisberger said he had contact with the woman that was not consummated and afterward she slipped and fell, injuring her head.[/quote:23htb37f]
An allegation of sexual assault does not necessarily imply sexual intercourse. In fact, if she was saying that non-consensual sexual intercourse took place, then the allegation would be rape rather than sexual assault. Sexual assault could simply be unwanted groping between two fully clothesed people (in which case, there would be no DNA evidence on her person to compare, as the initial article in this thread suggests). At this point in the case, there are not enough facts available to the public either way. Not enough to charge him, and not enough to declare his complete innocence either.
