DALLAS — Police in Dallas say it is unlikely harassment charges will be filed against a former Baylor football player who sent a series of fiery emails to The Dallas Morning News questioning coverage of his sexual-assault trial.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports Sam Ukwuachu continued to send emails to the Dallas newspaper after it sent a cease-and-desist letter to Ukwuachu and his attorney.

Ukwuachu was convicted in 2015 of sexual assault but an appeals court earlier this year overturned that conviction. McLennan County prosecutors are seeking to have the conviction reinstated.

Ukwuachu also has sent emails to the Tribune-Herald and other media. He’s profanely proclaimed his innocence to Tribune-Herald reporters and threated to sue prosecutors.

His case and others resulted in broad criticism at the way Baylor responded to allegations of sexual assault on campus.
