The case against Michael Reilly has been closed as of Tuesday, May 8 after documents show that the victim no longer wanted to press charges. 

The investigation was originally opened when a local woman made allegations of sexual battery in a YouTube video. The investigation was closed, but then reopened after a second victim came forward with battery accusations against Reilly

Dr. Reilly, who also spent time with the Tampa Bay Lightning and operated a private practice at St. Anthony's, denies all allegations of sexual abuse.

Reilly was let go from the organization shortly after the first investigation.
