* With insufficient evidence with which to work with, prosecutors say they will not file charges against several men who were accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old female in 2007 during a party at the residence of a De Anza College baseball player. The case has been investigated for close to a year, but there was not enough credible evidence to proceed. The alleged victim in the case reportedly does not remember what happened at the residence, where authorities say alcohol was involved. The school suspended eight players on the baseball team for reportedly violating the team's code of conduct. De Anza is a community college located in Cupertino.
