The Washington state appeals court denied a discretionary review on Hope Solo's domestic violence case this past Tuesday, according to local news King 5.

Solo was initially arrested and charged with two counts of domestic violence assault fourth degree for physically assaulting her half-sister and her nephew, to which she pleaded not guilty and cited self defense. ESPN took an in-depth look at the police reports from that night.

The charges were dismissed in January 2015 after Solo's half-sister and nephew refused to be deposed by Solo's lawyers, but prosecutors appealed and had the charges revived in October of that same year.

The next level of appeal for Solo would go through the Washington state Supreme Court, where she has 30 days to file a notice of appeal.

Solo just came off starting two games for the United States, both against Japan, and is a certain lock to make the Olympic roster this summer.
