State Declines To File Charges In De Anza College Rape Case

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California Attorney General Jerry Brown has
declined to file charges against De Anza College baseball players
accused of raping a 17-year-old girl last year.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney made the same decision last year, prompting a public outcry and Brown's involvement.

Brown announced his decision Friday at a news conference in San
Francisco.

Authorities began investigating athletes and other students at the community college in Cupertino after the teenager claimed she was gang-raped at a birthday party for one of the players.

Eight ball players were suspended from the team after the alleged rape was reported.
