TRIBUNE: Another Woman Accused Rape, Robbery Suspect Of Sexual Assault in December

Marcus Lynch, the man charged with raping and robbing a woman in a Boystown alley Monday afternoon, was accused of sexual assaulting another woman in December, but prosecutors did not file charges, the Chicago Tribune reports:
[P]rosecutors acknowledged that another woman had come forward in December alleging Lynch had sexually assaulted her. But prosecutors decided that they did not have enough evidence to convict Lynch, said Sally Daly, spokeswoman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.
“It was a different case with different circumstances, and there was insufficient evidence to pursue charges,” Daly said.
That development was nonchalantly added to the Tribune story during a Wednesday evening re-write.
