Judge David A. Cena dismissed the charge — one count of rape of an intoxicated person — on Monday. Santa Clara County prosecutor Chris Lamiero said in a statement that he tried to convince the victim to testify, but she refused.
The 49ers released Ray McDonald in December 2014, citing a “pattern of poor decision-making.”
The woman said she slipped and fell on a pool deck at McDonald’s San Jose home in December 2014 and continued to fall after that because of her initial head injury and alcohol consumption. She accused McDonald of carrying her upstairs to his bedroom and sexually assaulting her.

For five games, BSU was nearly untouchable. On a per-play basis, the Broncos drastically outgained two Pac-12 opponents 鈥?Washington State by 1.2 yards per play, Oregon State by 1.3 鈥?and handled two potentially confounding conference foes, Utah State and New Mexico. As Colorado State came to town, the Broncos had proved themselves by far the class of the mid-majors.
