Order won't be extended vs. Matt Pilgrim
STILLWATER, Okla. -- A judge has dismissed an emergency protective order issued against Oklahoma State forward Matt Pilgrim after a woman accused him of rape.
Payne County Special Judge Phillip Corley made the decision during a hearing Tuesday after concluding there was insufficient evidence of rape. Pilgrim hasn't been arrested or charged with a crime.
Corley scolded Pilgrim and the woman and said their behavior wasn't appropriate. He said the parties were in court because of both of their actions.
The woman's attorney, Park Medearis, said he was disappointed with the ruling. Medearis says evidence presented to Corley indicated that she told Pilgrim "no" before engaging in sex.
Asked after the ruling how he felt, Pilgrim said: "Great."
Pilgrim averaged 8.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in his first season with the Cowboys.
