Memphis police: No Dodd criminal investigation

(AP) - Memphis police say they will not conduct a criminal investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against former Amateur Athletic Union President Bobby Dodd because no one has filed a formal complaint against him.

ESPN reported last month that two former basketball players have accused Dodd of molesting them as children in Memphis and other locations. Memphis police said last month that they were looking into allegations forwarded to them by the AAU.

Police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph told The Associated Press on Tuesday that detectives could not find any victims and that no one has come forward to file a formal criminal complaint against Dodd.

Rudolph says there can be no criminal investigation without a victim.

Dodd's attorney has said his client is innocent.
