Gareon Conley rape case submitted to grand jury

CLEVELAND (AP) - Former Ohio State University player and current Oakland Raiders draft pick, Gareon Conley has been accused of raping a woman.

The case has been turned over to a grand jury, according to Cleveland Police.

The grand jury will decide if charges should be filed.

A 23-year-old woman told officers that Conley raped her in a hotel bathroom on April 9.

Conley denies a sexual assault took place. His attorney says there was "a consensual sexual event" that did not include intercourse.

Conley was chosen in the first round by Oakland as the 24th overall pick.
