The victim in the reported rape at Southern Pines chose not to press any charges in the case. 

STATESBORO — The victim of the reported rape at Southern Pines university housing has stated that she does not wish to file any criminal charges against the offender(s) in this case, according to a waiver of criminal prosecution that was signed on Monday. 

“This decision is made freely and without promise and/or coercion,” the signed waiver reads. “I release Georgia Southern University, and the GSU Division of Public Safety from any and all liabilities stemming from this case.”
