The commonwealth today withdrew all charges against former Penn State football player Austin Scott, the Centre County District Attorney's office wrote in a press release.
The decision comes just hours after the state Superior Court ruled prior allegations of rape by Scott's accuser were admissible in court.
"In light of the likely admission of evidence we believe is irrelevant, as officers of the court, it is our position that there is no reasonable likelihood the commonwealth can meet its burden of proof," the press release read.
Scott, 22, of Allentown, had been charged with rape, sexual assault, simple assault and two counts of indecent assault stemming from an alleged encounter at his on-campus residence with a female student in October.
