With the #MeToo movement still in full force, Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia has landed in the middle of a scandal — not for any recent actions, but for an alleged 1996 sex assault during a college spring break trip.
According to Texas court records, Patricia was charged in 1996 with aggravated sexual assault, but he was never prosecuted for it. The case — which involved claims that Patricia and a football buddy sexually assaulted a college student in a hotel room — was quickly dismissed.
According to records in Cameron County Circuit Court, Patricia was indicted in August of 1996. The case was dismissed five months later, in January of 1997.
Greg Dietrich, Patricia’s friend and former college teammate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, also was accused in the sexual assault and was not prosecuted.
