The attorney for UT linebacker Jordan Hicks said on Wednesday that his client will not face charges related to a sexual assault investigation in San Antonio.  A San Antonio Police spokesperson, however, said the investigation is still open.

"I just got off the phone with the San Antonio Police Department detective in charge of the investigation of my client and he has informed me that no charges will be brought against Jordan Hicks or anyone else in this matter," said Perry Minton, the attorney for Hicks. "The investigation is closed.

"Additionally, I have spoken to Mr. Hicks and his family and they are understandably relieved. Mr. Hicks will be returning to the University of Texas once school resumes from holiday break."

Jordan Hicks and backup quarterback Case McCoy were suspended from the team and sent home to Austin on December 28, the day before the Alamo Bowl, for violating team rules.

Coach Mack Brown announced two players had been disciplined at a press conference the day before the game. The announcement came after a San Antonio TV station published a report that said two players were involved in an investigation for a sexual assault.

However, Sandy Gutierrez of the San Antonio Police Department, issued a statement on Wednesday stating the investigation is ongoing. 

"In light of the media inquiries into the allegation of a sexual assault that took place in the early morning hours on December 28, 2012, in the downtown area, the San Antonio Police Department's SVU (Special Victims Unit) is still reviewing the case," Gutierrez said.

Hicks had not played for the Longhorns since the third game of the season due to injury.
