No federal charges on Schilling’s 38 Studios

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — No federal criminal charges will be brought in the case of the video game company owned by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, which received a $75 million state loan guarantee before going belly up, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Rhode Island said Friday. A state investigation continues.

Jim Martin, a spokesman for U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha, told The Associated Press the office conducted a narrow and focused review of 38 Studios to see whether any federal laws were broken, including bank fraud.

“No further federal action is planned at this time,” he said.

Col. Steven O’Donnell, head of the Rhode Island State Police, said the investigation into whether any state laws were violated is still open.

“It’s still being pursued and we follow all leads that are presented to us,” he said.

An investigation into federal bank fraud could have looked at whether any false statements or false information was given to banks that loaned money to the company, among other questions.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Lincoln Chafee said he would not comment because of the ongoing state investigation. A spokeswoman for Attorney General Peter Kilmartin did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
