OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – The Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s office has dropped charges against former Orlando City soccer player Jonathan Suárez-Cortes.
The state attorney’s office filed a no information notice with the court on Tuesday, effectively ending their prosecution of Suárez-Cortes.
The notice states that the “case is not suitable for prosecution” and that Suárez-Cortes’ record should be cleared. The notice does not give further detail on the decision to drop the case.
Suárez-Cortes was arrested in February, accused of sexually battering a woman with his brother, Rafael Suárez Jr., at a home in Osceola County. Prosecutors also filed a no information notice in Suárez Jr.’s case as well on Tuesday.
Suárez-Cortes, known as Jonathan Suárez, was acquired earlier this year by Orlando City on loan from Queretaro FC, according to the team, but his contract was terminated shortly after the arrest.
