MADISON (WKOW) -- A Los Angeles Police detective investigating former UW Athletics administrator John Chadima's alleged sexual assault at a 2011 Rose Bowl-related party told 27 News no referral for prosecution will be made in the case.
Assault Special Section detective Jesse Alvarado said he's been unable to get information from the victim, a UW Athletics student-employee.
"Everything I can do without the victim has been done," Alvarado told 27 News.
"Nothing will be presented to either the Los Angeles County District Attorney or the city attorney."
Chadima resigned in January after allegedly sexually assaulting the 22-year old student at the end of a Dec. 30 party Chadima hosted before the bowl game in his Los Angeles hotel suite.
UW-Madison officials hired former Dane County Judge Patrick Fiedler to review what happened. Fiedler found the victim's account of being sexually touched by Chadima to be credible, but also noted the victim was reluctant to make himself available for any potential criminal investigation.
Alvarado told 27 News the victim's reluctance was not unusual.
"It's hard to get people to come forward, especially when there is media attention."
Alvarado said the LAPD investigation remains technically an open case, but will remain at a standstill without victim input.
Alvarado said a referral to the county district attorney would have been made if there was suspicion a felony had been committed, while any potential misdemeanor crime would have been handled by the Los Angeles city attorney.
Fiedler reviewed subsequent accusations against Chadima of sexual impropriety from two other men, including a former UW football player.
UW Police officials said they were investigating the accusations.
Sgt. Aaron Chapin told 27 News the investigation is ongoing.
Chadima spent more than two decades with the UW Athletics department, with the final years of his career as a top manager.
