Re: Cornell Haynes, aka Nelly
Our office has formally declined to file charges on this matter.
The following statement will be released if there are inquiries on the status of the case:
"Police responded to and investigated a sexual assault allegation involving Mr. Haynes. However, within days of her initial report to police, the complainant, through her attorney, informed investigators from the Auburn police department that she did not wish to assist in prosecution or the investigation of Mr. Haynes. While we have reviewed the existing investigative material, without the assistance of the complainant, this office is unable to proceed or fully assess the merits of the case."
