Milwaukee - On Wednesday, the Milwaukee County District Attorney's (MCDA) Office confirmed it will not charged Brent Johnson who was taken into custody on Sunday for alleged sexual assault of a woman. Johnson spent the night in jail and has told local media outlets that he is innocent.
The woman alleged that Johnson sexually assaulted her around September. It would be difficult to prosecute Johnson because no evidence was gathered from the victim after the assault, according to the MCDA's office.
Johnson is currently a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) and Student Association (SA) Vice President. UWM has launched an internal investigation concerning the alleged sexual assault. Johnson, if found responsible and actually committed the alleged sexual assault could face expulsion or suspension from UWM. He has been temperarily put on administrative leave from his position as SA vice-president until the outcome of the case, according to Michael Laliberte, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs.
