(NBC) -

Chicago Blackhawks player Patrick Kane will not be prosecuted after being accused of sexual assault in August.

The Erie County New York District Attorney announced Thursday, he will not file criminal charges against Kane.

The allegations began when a woman accused Kane of sexually assaulting her. During the investigation, authorities found inconsistencies in her accusations. The accuser also told officials last week, she would no longer cooperate with the investigation.

Kane maintained his innocence since the charges were first brought up.
