District Attorney sets Roethlisberger press conference

DA Fred Bright will address sex assault investigation


Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright will hold a press conference Monday to address a sexual assault investigation involving Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

"The investigation, interviews and report in the Roethlisberger matter have completed and reviewed," Bright said. "We will be announcing the decision in this case at a news conference to be held on Monday, April 12, 2010 at 2 p.m. in the Baldwin County Courthouse."

The announcement indicates that Bright has completed his review of the case. Bright will announce whether or not his office will pursue charges against Roethlisberger who was identified by the Milledgeville Police Department as a suspect in a sexual assault that allegedly occurred in downtown Milledgeville in the early morning hours of March 5.

Since the report of the assault, the Milledgeville Police Department and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have worked on the case, conducting interviews with witnesses. Aside from a brief initial interview of Roethlisberger shortly following the incident, police have yet to interview the NFL quarterback who has retained noted defense attorney Ed Garland.

The press conference is expected to draw national media attention and will likely result in another wave of media descending upon Milledgeville.
