A Cooper High athlete charged with sexual assault was "no billed" Thursday by a Taylor County grand jury. That means the District Attorney's Office will no longer pursue the charge against him.
Cordell Dorsey, 18, was arrested in August 2013 for allegedly sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl. He was briefly suspended from the CHS football team; however, he was re-instated in November.
KTXS reached out to Abilene Independent School District officials at that time to find out why he had been relieved from the suspension before the case went to grand jury.
AISD Communications Director Phil Ashby issued the following statement on Nov. 18: “Federal Privacy law prevents us from discussing any student’s disciplinary record or alternative campus placements. However, we can certainly confirm that every student athlete playing in Abilene ISD is enrolled in good standing and attending in the campus being represented, consistent with UIL guidelines. As for Cordell Dorsey, he is an active member of the Cooper team.”
Dorsey had previously committed to play football for Baylor University; however, it is not clear where he will play college football at this time because his name does not appear on Baylor University’s 2014 recruiting list.
