BREAKING: Judge DISMISSES all charges against Hope Solo.— Chris Daniels (@ChrisDaniels5) January 13, 2015
There have been hints for weeks that the case was teetering thanks to inconsistent statements from the alleged victims and failure to adhere to deadlines. Today the judge reviewed new depositions taken Thursday from Solo's half-sister and nephew and evidently was unimpressed.
Solo is currently away at a national team training camp in California. The case had put her ability to play for the USWNT in the 2015 World Cup at risk, as there were suggestions that Canada would prevent her from entering the country with a domestic violence conviction. Now she's free to focus on her World Cup preparations as well as preparations for the Reign's season, which kicks off in April.
