Sources: Dallas Police won’t pursue sexual assault charges against Dak Prescott, found no evidence to support accuser’s claim

The Cowboys QB’s lawyers were allegedly sent a letter from the woman’s legal team in February claiming he sexually assaulted her in 2017 and asking for $100 million.

COLLIN COUNTY, Texas — Editor’s note: The video published above is a WFAA report from April when the woman accusing Dak Prescott of sexual assault dropped her lawsuit in Dallas County to move the case to Collin County.

The Dallas Police Department will not pursue criminal charges against Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott after a woman accused him of sexual assault, sources confirm to WFAA. 

Sources tell WFAA the department found no evidence to support the woman’s claim, and the District Attorney’s Office says it has no case.

The alleged victim and her attorneys also filed a motion this week to dismiss Prescott’s countersuit against them. In that suit, the quarterback accuses the accuser and her attorneys of extortion. 

Yoel Zehaie, the attorney for the accuser, told WFAA in an email that the 47-page motion to dismiss was filed on Monday because “we believe [Prescott’s filing] was meant to silence his sexual assault victim” and “is in violation of Texas’s Anti Slapp Statute which prohibits different forms of retaliatory lawsuits.” 

Prescott’s attorney, Levi McCathern, issued the following statement to WFAA in response to that filing: 

“The Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is total nonsense. They have yet again misrepresented the relevant facts and misconstrued the law as it applies to them. We are going to show, plain and simple, that this case is about the ridiculous attempt by [the victim] and her lawyers, Yoel and Bethel Zehaie, to extort Dak Prescott out of $100 million based on fabricated allegations, which could not be further from the truth. And, now that Dallas County has rightfully closed its investigation into the Defendants’ false allegations regarding Mr. Prescott, we intend on promptly filing claims against the Defendants for malicious prosecution.

McCathern’s statement on Thursday echoed his same earlier sentiments on the matter, when he reiterated Prescott’s denial of the allegations in a statement to WFAA when Prescott’s accuser re-filed the lawsuit against the Cowboys quarterback in Collin County.

“I want to thank the Dallas Police Department and Dallas County District Attorney’s office for their thorough investigation of the allegations against Dak Prescott. As we knew they would, they found nothing in their extensive exploration of the facts that would support a criminal prosecution. We are confident that at the end of law enforcement’s investigation into the extortion case that they will find the accuser and her attorneys just as guilty as Dak is innocent. As I have said from the beginning, Dak is a great football player, and an even better human. He would never assault any woman. These false accusations were brought up 7 years after the alleged events for one reason and one reason only – to line the pockets of the accuser and her attorneys. Their behavior is an affront to all the true survivors of sexual assault.”

Last February, Prescott’s legal team was allegedly sent a letter from the woman’s legal claiming he sexually assaulted her in Feb. 2017. According to court filings, she demanded $100 million in exchange for not reporting to police.

Prescott’s team then filed a civil countersuit and a criminal report in March, at which time his lawyers denied the allegations and claimed the Cowboys QB was the victim of an “extortion plot.”

Following Prescott’s countersuit, the woman’s lawyer sent a statement to WFAA doubling down on the accusation. WFAA spoke with the accuser and all attorney’s involved in the case back in March. You can watch all of those conversations here:
