Kansas prosecutors are asking a judge to drop three felony charges against Jackson Mahomes, according to the Associated Press. Mahomes allegedly grabbed a woman by the neck and kissed her against her will on Feb. 25, 2023, at a suburban Kansas City establishment.
Johnson County Assistant District Attorney Megan Ahsens filed a motion on Tuesday to dismiss the three counts of aggravated sexual battery that Mahomes is facing. Mahomes, the younger brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, also faces a misdemeanor battery charge relating to the incident.
Tuesday’s court filing stated that prosecutors were given an affidavit from Vaughn’s attorneys that said that she refused to testify in the case.
In a statement, Mahomes’ attorney, Brandan Davies, said that Mahomes “has done nothing wrong. We had full confidence that the truth of the matter would ultimately be revealed.”
The alleged incident occurred at Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park, Kan., a suburb of Kansas City. Investigators stated that Mahomes pushed a waiter who tried to come into the room where he was with the restaurant’s owner, Aspen Vaughn. After the waiter left, Mahomes reportedly grabbed Vaughn and allegedly kissed her three times without consent, according to prosecutors.
Vaughn informed police that Mahomes was a friend of her stepdaughter, and had been previously asked to leave the restaurants in the past. The restaurant closed back in August following publicity relating to the case and was even vandalized following Mahomes being charged.
