HOUSTON (Reuters) – A Texas grand jury on Friday declined to indict the former Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, a Houston prosecutor said in a statement.
“After a Harris County grand jury was presenting all the evidence and had the opportunity to hear from all witnesses, grand jurors declined to indict Deshaun Watson,” said Dane Schiller, a spokesperson for the Harris County Attorney’s Office.
The proceedings are secret by law and no further information on the inquiry will be disclosed, he said.
Watson still faces civil lawsuits accusing the former quarterback of sexual assault and inappropriate conduct.
