FLINT, Mich. – Former Michigan State University basketball star Mateen Cleaves has been found not guilty on all counts in a sexual assault case.
Cleaves was charged with criminal sexual conduct, assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct and unlawful imprisonment. He was accused of assaulting a 24-year-old woman after a charity golf event and a visit to a Flint-area bar in 2015.
A district judge dismissed the charges in 2016, but a circuit court reinstated them on appeal.
All charges were dismissed Tuesday.
Cleaves led Michigan State to the NCAA basketball championship in 2000 and played for four NBA teams.
