— The Wake County District Attorney's Office will not seek charges against a former Apex police officer for sexual assault.

The State Bureau of Investigation accused Jonathon Penny of assaulting a teenager after driving her home from a party last year.

The young woman involved in the situation has also filed a civil lawsuit against Penny which is not affected by the criminal case.
