A decision has been made in the case of six University of Kentucky football players who were charged with felony burglary and other counts following a fraternity party that degenerated into a brawl in March, which we just covered on Investigates. According to the @CourierJournal, a local grand jury has chosen not to indict the six University of Kentucky football players who were charged with felony burglary and faced 10-20 years in prison after an altercation at a fraternity party in March.
R.J. Adams, JuTahn McClain, Andru Phillips, Ernest Sanders IV, Vito Tisdale, and Joel Williams all pleaded not guilty in the case, and all charges against them were dropped after deliberations. You may recall that we previously discussed the case on Investigates when we spoke with Vito Tisdale’s father, who professed his son’s innocence. The grand jury began formal deliberations in the case earlier this week and announced their conclusion today. Following the grand jury’s decision, all of the young men have been cleared to return to the Campus of Kentucky football team, according to a university spokesman.
Following the testimony of individuals who were there at the party, prosecutors presented all of their evidence before the grand jury, which finally chose to dismiss the case.
