According to the same TMZ report, prosecutors said, “Following a complaint filed on September 10 denouncing acts that could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, Mr. Conor Anthony Mac Gregor was the subject of a hearing by the gendarmerie services.”
Obviously, there’s not a ton of details out there right now, but it does sound like McGregor has been cut loose for the time being.
It’s never a good thing whenever you’re facing an allegation of attempted sexual assault. That’s about as serious as it gets when it comes to criminal charges.
While not in America, McGregor should still be presumed innocent until proven guilty. That’s the way we should always approach these situations.
