Sexual Assault Charges Filed On Kobe Bryant

District attorney Mark Hurlbert announced Friday that one count of sexual assault has been filed against N-B-A star Kobe Bryant. He says the standards he used in making the decision were the same as for any other case. Shortly after he was charged with sexual assault of a 19-year-old hotel worker, Bryant admitted to adultery, but said he did not assault the woman. "I made the mistake of adultery. I have to answer to my wife and my God for my actions that night and I pray that both will forgive me," he said. The alleged incident happened June 30 at the lodge and spa at Cordillera in Edwards, Colorado. The woman filed a police complaint the following day. The 24-year old basketball star surrendered to authorities on July 4 and was released on a 24-hour bond. Bryant told the los angeles times last weekend, "I would never do anything like that." Bryant is due in court on august 6-th.
