Criminal prosecutions are done by the County Attorney, not individuals. And County Attorneys are elected, and need contributions from rich, powerful men to run their campaigns. So they tend to be hesitant about indicting them. Especially when the only evidence is the word of a young woman.

Nothing surprising about this,
Cite?

The prosecutor wouldn't have a chance to make that determination if there wasn't a police report or further investigation. Did she try? I haven't seen anything about it but I don't know one way or the other. If she did attempt and it didn't go anywhere you could form an opinion about it even without facts. But if she didn't attempt to go that route then yes she chose to sue.
