According to KTNV Las Vegas, the Clark County District Attorney's Office has declined to prosecute Ronaldo over an assault claim dating back to June 2009.
Nevada's Clark County District Attorney's Office announced Monday that it will not go ahead with sexual assault charges against Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo won't face criminal charges after a woman accused him of raping her at a Las Vegas Strip resort in 2009. It was at that time that Mayorga identified her attacker as Ronaldo.
Police responded to her location to take a crime report.
The Associated Press generally does not name people who say they are victims of sexual assault. As a result, the police were unable to follow investigative protocols for sexual assault cases or to conduct any meaningful investigation. In addition, video evidence, showing interactions between the victim and perpetrator before and after the alleged crime, was lost.
Authorities added that the investigation over the past year has not brought up any new evidence that would cause the 34-year-old to be charged with a crime.
Ronaldo's attorney, Peter Christiansen, and a representative for his sports agents could not immediately be reached for comment.

More than 50 countries now support Guaido, and the US regularly announces new sanctions against Maduro and his associates. Video footage released by the military, shows the Venezuelan fighter jet closing in on the US surveillance aircraft.
The allegation made headlines a year ago after Las Vegas police said they were investigating it.
However, in a statement provided by the prosecutors, Ronaldo was cleared after the sexual assault claims "could not be proven beyond reasonable doubt".
An investigation was reopened in August of past year after Mayorga contacted Las Vegas police, naming Ronaldo as the offender.
A Request for Prosecution was submitted to the District Attorney's Office on July 8.
However, prosecutors said on Monday they could not substantiate Mayorga's claims, and therefore "no charges will be forthcoming." .
