While a woman has alleged she was sexually assaulted by Mizzou RB Derrick Washington, no charges have been filed by the Boone County Prosecutor's office, according to Vahe Gregorian of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Assistant prosecutor Andrea Hayes told the Post-Dispatch that there is a "matter" with Washington and it "has been referred to our office, and it is under review."
While she wouldn't divulge any more details, Gregorian reports through a source that there have been discussions this week about a plea deal to reduce it to a misdemeanor.
From Washington's perspective, he probably needs to get back onto the field as quickly as possible. Accepting a plea deal, may be the best way to do that.
