The sexual assault and indecent exposure charges brought against Conor McGregor have been dropped by Authorities in Corsica. They were dropped due to lack of evidence.
Prosecuters spoke in a court in Bastia. They said that no further action will be taken against the MMA fighter.
Bastia prosecuter Arnaud Viornery told a court, “We had no material evidence to corroborate the complainant’s statements, including after the scientific expert input that had been ordered”.
McGregor’s lawyer Emanuelle Ramond said, “We welcome this decision because it is in line with what we expected”.
McGregor “vigorously” denied allegations
When questioned by police last September regarding these accusations, McGregor “vigorously” denied the allegations.
When these claims came to light, McGregor had been sailing around the Mediterranean in his yacht. His wife Dee Devlin and children were also on board.
McGregor had been preparing to take part in a charity event from Calvi to Monaco alongside Princess Charlene of Monaco. This was in aid of raising awareness of water safety.
