NFL fines outgoing owner $60 million after lengthy investigation
Current Washington Commanders owner Daniel Snyder sexually assaulted a former employee at a work-related dinner.
This is the claim made in the NFL investigation, according to a report released on Thursday.
The NFL released a 23-page investigative report, prepared by former US Attorney Mary Jo White and a team of outside lawyers.
The report came shortly after its owners voted unanimously to approve the sale of the Commanders by Snyder to Josh Harris for $6.05 billion.
The league explained in a statement that Snyder "will pay the league $60 million, or approximately 1% of that sale price, in consideration of Ms. White's findings and the resolution of all outstanding matters."
League commissioner Roger Goodell made a statement that, "The conduct attested to in Ms. White's findings has no place in the NFL."
A spokesman for the commander did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and efforts to reach Snyder's attorneys were not immediately successful.
The NFL explained in a statement that White's team interviewed "dozens" of witnesses as part of its investigation.
