Furthermore, two other women made similar allegations against the two brothers.
Despite all the allegations, Steven and Jean were allowed to represent the U.S. at the Rio Olympics. The organizing body consulted with the U.S. Olympic Committee and agreed to delay the probe before the Olympic games.
A lady on the junior national team said that Steven raped her when she was drugged and unconscious. A fourth woman accused Jean. She said they had a relationship under a certain agreement when Jean raped her.
Both brothers, however, didn't accept the sexual assault allegations made by all four women to the newspapers and investigators.
Jean Lopez said,
"I've never been inappropriate with anyone."
