Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants will not face charges in an alleged sexual assault complaint.

Both the Santa Cruz sheriff's department and the district attorney have concluded there's nothing to pursue criminally against the San Francisco Giants Pablo Sandoval.

Sandoval was accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a woman after a night at Motiv, a bar on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz. An alleged incident occured later that morning at the Seascape Beach Resort in Aptos. Sandoval was never charged in the complaint.

According to a release, the district attorney concluded the complainant's story shifted too much to be reliable:

[District Attorney Bob] Lee further added "The nature and number of the complainant's inconsistencies leaves us unable to establish her version of events beyond a reasonable doubt. Nothing from the physical evidence and other witnesses helped corroborate her story. All the evidence that might be relevant to the contested issues of force and lack of consent is simply inconlusive."
