According to USA Today's A.J. Perez, the NFL was unable to obtain any evidence from prosecutors in the investigation of Hill's child abuse allegations.
The prosecutor's office used exemptions to open-records law to stop the NFL from gaining information from the case. The league was unable to receive enough evidence to hand out a suspension to Hill.
What is very puzzling about the lack of suspension is that despite all the available evidence, which a majority of people heard and saw, it was not enough to even issue a small suspension.
In the past the NFL has handed out punishments without having obtained a large amount of evidence. Today, Seattle Seahawks Jarran Reed was handed a six-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy.
The NFL's personal conduct policy spans eight pages on a PDF, where it outlines ways players can violate the policy. Details of Reed's suspension have not been released, but you can guarantee the situations of Reed and Hill will be examined and criticized widely.
