Ex-UGA footballer’s lawyer calls for rape charge to be dismissed

FILE - University of Georgia linebacker Adam Anderson

The attorney for former University of Georgia Bulldogs star linebacker Adam Anderson filed a July 26 motion to have a rape charge against his client dismissed due to a lack of DNA evidence.

But the Western Circuit District Attorney’s Office responded by filing a notice that Anderson’s motion had no legal basis.

“This is the second motion Anderson has filed without a valid legal basis,” the motion reads. Earlier this year, Superior Court Judge Eric Norris denied a defense motion to dismiss the charge on the grounds that 153 days had passed without the rape case going to a grand jury.
