No Assault Case vs. Marko Jaric (posted 14 March 2009). Is a sexual assault case being filed against Memphis Grizzlies guard Marco Jaric? Nah. It turns out to be a non-case at all. Maybe the “self-proclaimed” victim is trying to get in the news or something and decided to use Marco as her tool to get her 15 minutes of fame?
According to an Associated Press report, prosecutors decided to NOT file sexual assault charges against Jaric stating that the accusations against him “lack prosecutorial merit.”
Says Jaric following the decision: “I’m glad everything is over. I’m glad all the facts are (out). All I want is to focus on the game and get a few more wins.”
Jaric’s attorney, Bruce L. Castor Jr., had this to say about the matter: “Persons in Marko’s position are often the target of malicious statements and it is not unusual for the police to be asked to investigate. However, these allegations were proved to be completely false, and while Marko is extremely unsettled by these accusations, he is happy that the law enforcement authorities have cleared him of any criminal conduct and the issue can now be put to rest.”
