Courtney Thornton dismisses VPO against Rodney Anderson

In a statement obtained by The Oklahoman’s Brooke Pryor, Courtney Thornton is dropping the victim protective order she filed against Oklahoma running back on Dec. 4.

In the statement, Thornton says her faith in the local judicial system “diminished” following the press conference held by the Cleveland County District Attorney’s office.

“Despite my adamant fight for justice,” Thornton wrote in the statement, “I have chosen to dismiss my Victim Protective Order upon receiving military orders two days ago to begin training. I look forward to starting this next chapter of my life as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.”

Anderson created a Twitter account to deny the allegations made, and the Cleveland County District Attorney’s office announced on Thursday it would not pursue charges against Anderson.
