CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Police in Charlottesville, Virginia, plan to release the findings of an investigation prompted by a Rolling Stone article about an alleged gang rape.

The police department has scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. Monday in Charlottesville. A notice posted on the police department’s website says the department won’t answer any questions prior to the news conference.

The November 2014 article described an alleged gang rape at a fraternity house in 2012. Rolling Stone has since apologized for the article and noted discrepancies.
