After being reported that the accuser in the Ben Roethlisberger case was no longer cooperating with police and would not volunteer for an interview, the attorney of the accuser has issued a statement which said, "Our client is cooperating fully with law enforcement in this matter. Future interviews have been scheduled and our client will attend."

Reports circulated on the Internet Wednesday night that the accuser was no longer cooperating with law enforcement, which led many to speculate that her story might have changed or she was no longer feeling confident with her claim against the Steeler quarterback.

Video from the night club is no longer available due to a mistake by Georgia Bureau of Investigation, who claim they thought the video would have been saved and thus did not immediately ask for the evidence.

The Capitol Night Club's attorney, Carl Cansino, told Pittsburgh's Channel 11 News that police went to the club three days after the alleged incident to view the video.

Cansino stated the detectives got an unrelated call and were forced to leave.

Once they returned to get to retrieve the evidence, they claimed it wouldn't play.

Cansino claims the video was viewed by the manager of the club before it malfunctioned, and that it never showed Roethlisberger and the accuser together.

This accuser is believed to be a sophomore at Georgia College & State University and currently a member of an on-campus sorority.
