Case Closed: Al Gore Cleared of Sex Assault Allegations
The sexual assault case against former Vice President Al Gore has been dropped due to "lack of credible evidence," People.com reports.
The Portland, Oregon District of Attorney's office said a "sustainable criminal case does not exist" after looking into claims by Molly Hagerty, the massage therapist who alleged Gore made "unwanted sexual contact" with her during a massage at his hotel in 2006.
The investigation was closed after prosecutors interviewed witnesses and couldn't procure any forensic evidence. They also took into account that Hagerty failed a polygraph test.
"Mr. Gore unequivocally and emphatically denied this accusation when he first learned of its existence three years ago," said Gore family spokeswoman Kalee Kreider. "He respects and appreciates the thorough and professional work of the Portland authorities and is pleased that this matter has now been resolved."
