Report: Lions head coach Matt Patricia indicted, not tried, in 1996 sexual assault case
Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia was arrested, charged and later indicted by a grand jury on one count of aggravated sexual assault in 1996, but never stood trial or faced a conviction, according to a report in The Detroit News published on Wednesday. The alleged incident occurred while Patricia was a member of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s football team and involved one of his teammates as well.
The accuser declined to testify, and prosecutors were forced to dismiss the case before it could be tried. A hand-written note from the Cameron County Assistant District Attorney’s January 1997 motion to dismiss said that the “victim does not feel she can face the pressures or stress of a trial,” according to the report.
