ABC News' Mary Kathryn Burke reports: John Bankhead of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation tells the ABC News Law and Justice that the case accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault is “still ongoing but should be wrapping up soon.”

“We collect facts and turn them over to DA,” Bankhead said. “The DA will review soon… we have a job to do and we are doing it.”

No one from The Georgia Bureau of Investigation would comment on videos from the Millegeville nightclub where Roethlisberger allegedly assaulted a 20 year old college student, but in early March, Special Agent Tom Davis said authorities would be reviewing the videos as a primary source in their investigation.

At that time, Ed Garland, an attorney representing Roethlisberger issued a statement denying any wrongdoing on his part.

"The facts show that there was no criminal activity,” the statement reads. “No sexual assault occurred. We are cooperating with the investigation. Ben is completely innocent of any crime. The truth of the events should cause this investigation to end without a criminal charge.”
