UNM reinstates players after rape charges dropped

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Two New Mexico football players won't be prosecuted in an alleged sexual assault case, and they're being reinstated to the team.

The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/1kB9lM9 ) reports that Athletic Director Paul Krebs confirmed Tuesday that running back Crusoe Gongbay from Rockville, Maryland, and cornerback SaQwan Edwards from Houston had been reinstated and are rejoining the Lobos.

The Bernalillo County District Attorney's Office chose to drop the criminal case against the two players and Ryan Ruff, a former New Mexico student who wasn't on the team.

The District Attorney's Office had dismissed the charges in June, but at that time held open the possibility that they could be refiled.

However, District Attorney Kari Brandenburg said Wednesday her office determined there was insufficient evidence to prove guilt.
