ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Rape charges have been dropped against a University of New Mexico football player and a community college student.
The Bernalillo County district attorney's office said Tuesday that prosecutors won't pursue charges against Crusoe Gongbay, a Lobos running back, and Ryan Ruff, a Central New Mexico Community College student.
However, officials said charges may be refiled pending an investigation.
Officials say charges against New Mexico cornerback SaQwan Edwards in the same case also are expected to be dropped later this week.
The three were arrested in April in connection with an alleged rape of a female student.
Defense attorney George Anthony says the school and investigators botched the case from the beginning and all charges should have been dismissed.
