Attorney General Dana Nessel's office received a case file involving a sexual assault complaint against MSU basketball player Brock Washington on Monday.

A police report and emails obtained by ESPN say there is probable cause to believe he had raped a woman while she was too intoxicated to consent Jan. 19.

“It’s physically in the office, but we’re not in a position yet to review the file with our attorneys and make a decision in terms of moving forward or not,” Kelly Rossman-McKinney, communications director for the attorney general’s office, said.

Washington pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault stemming from a separate criminal conduct investigation in August 2017.

Washington was suspended in January 2020, according to USA Today.
