Sexual assault civil suit against Carlos Marmol was dropped

4 Comments

This winter Carlos Marmol was accused of sexual assault by a 24-year-old woman in the Dominican Republic and the Cubs reliever in turn accused the woman of blackmail and extortion, filing a counter lawsuit.

Marmol said back in February that he was “very pissed off” about the charges, claiming: “I didn’t do anything. The stuff she said is not true. It’s about money.”

Four months later the civil lawsuit against him has apparently been dropped and Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Marmol “did not pay a settlement.”
