What appeared to be true a few days ago has now been confirmed by Santa Cruz District Attorney Bob Lee.

The District Attorney’s office will not charge the Giants third baseman after they and the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department could not find sufficient evidence to charge Sandoval, it was announced Monday.

Still, Sandoval’s image has been smudged a bit, even if he is not being charged.

However, Sandoval may not be completely out of hot water as his attorney, Eric Geffon, was mum when speaking with Jim Kozimor on Chronicle Live on if the Santa Cruz woman would pursue civil charges against Sandoval.
