LOS ANGELES—By week’s end we should find out if the District Attorney’s office will proceed with charges of date rape against Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. The allegations were brought before Hermosa Beach law enforcement back in March, where a woman claimed she had met Doughty at a seaside bar.
The sequence of events, based on the woman’s testimony, is that they went back to Doughty’s home from the bar along with a group of his teammates. When Doughty made his advances, she loudly voiced her protestation and after sharing a cab back to her place he proceeded to rape her. She reported the incident the same day.
The District Attorney’s office is still deciding whether to prosecute Doughty based on the amount of evidence found and credibility of the witness' testimony. A decision is expected to be made within a week’s time.
