L.A. District Attorney Declines Sex Assault Case Against Sylvester Stallone
The actor disputed the claims vehemently.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office on Tuesday announced it declined a case of sexual assault filed against Sylvester Stallone.
According to a case document, the female victim claimed she was assaulted by the actor in 1987 and 1990. And while the victim did provide witnesses, none of their versions of events corroborated the claims made, according to the document. That statute of limitations had also passed on the allegations.
Last December, Stallone was accused of sexual assault in a claim made to the Santa Monica Police Department. The actor disputed the claims vehemently.
Santa Monica police filed the case in June.
Previously, the district attorney's office declined to prosecute sex crime cases against actors Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson and Steven Seagal, including reasons that the statute of limitations had passed and one reporting party declined to be interviewed by authorities for the case.
The D.A.'s office is still reviewing cases against Harvey Weinstein, whose massive scandal spurred the #MeToo movement within the last year.
