Assault Case Against Dak Prescott Dismissed By Judge for Lack of Evidence

A judge has thrown out a lawsuit alleging sexual assault against Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

Collin County Judge Angela Tucker’s decision on Wednesday follows the Dallas police’s announcement in May that they found “insufficient evidence” to support criminal charges against Prescott and would not pursue the case.

The lawsuit stemmed from an alleged incident in 2017, where a woman claimed Prescott assaulted her in the back of an SUV in a strip club parking lot.

In January, attorneys Bethel and Yoel Zehaie sent a letter on behalf of a woman accusing Prescott of sexual assault in February 2017.

The letter stated that the woman was willing to drop criminal charges and refrain from making the information public in exchange for compensation for her emotional distress, which they valued at $100 million.

Prescott denied the allegations and filed a countersuit, which remains active. Prescott’s attorney, Levi McCathern, also mentioned potential extortion charges against the woman and her legal team in Collin County.

“Despite [the woman’s] and her legal team’s persistent attempts to extort money and damage Dak’s reputation, justice has consistently prevailed and will continue to do so,” McCathern said in a statement.

Judge Tucker scheduled a hearing for September 13 to consider whether sanctions should be imposed on the woman and her attorneys.
