According to the Walworth County district attorney, criminal charges can’t be brought against a UW-Whitewater wrestling recruit accused of sexual assault.

According to Whitewater police records, the DA declined to issue charges because the case could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

The recruit’s coach, Tim Fader, was suspended after allegations surfaced. The school argued Fader had not followed policy when he notified the police and not his athletic director. His contract was eventually not renewed, but he was cleared of any wrongdoing by the DA.
