The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday that no charges will be filed against a former Paso Robles police sergeant accused of sexual assault.

Christopher McGuire was placed on leave back in May.

Paso Robles Police Chief Ty Lewis would only say at the time that McGuire was accused of committing a “serious criminal act” and that the case was turned over to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office for investigation.

The DA’s Office began reviewing the case in August and confirmed it involved potential charges related to sexual assault. McGuire was accused of sexually assaulting a woman he met while on duty.

At a press conference on Thursday, District Attorney Dan Dow said that an investigation by his office concluded that “no reasonable and objective jury could find Mr. McGuire guilty of the alleged crimes.”

McGuire, who started working with the Paso Robles Police Department in 2012, resigned Oct. 1 .
