One of four Bradley men’s basketball players who had been suspended in part because of a sex crime investigation in Springfield has been cleared according to Bradley officials.
The cleared player, Ja’Shon Henry, was suspended about 30 minutes before Bradley’s first game with Missouri State at JQH Arena this weekend. A police report uncovered yesterday showed that four players were part of a report of a “sex offense, all except rape” that was under active investigation by Springfield police.
Bradley released the following Thursday morning:
“As this situation and the investigation evolve, Ja’Shon Henry has been cleared of any accusations. Ja’Shon is neither a person of interest nor suspect in the case. He also has been cleared of possible student conduct violations. He will be rejoining team activities effective immediately.
The investigation to determine if a crime or a violation of student code of conduct occurred with the remaining three players continues. They remain suspended from all basketball-related activities.”
The remaining three players are Elijah Childs, Danya Kingsby, and Terry Nolan, Jr..
SportsTalk co-host Wyatt Wheeler reported the incident allegedly took place at the TownePlace Suites where the team was staying for their weekend series with the Bears. Due to the nature of the crime under investigation, almost all the documents connected to the investigation are redacted from public release.
