The is the second case against the actor that authorities have declined to prosecute.

On Friday, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced that Steven Seagal would not be charged for a sexual assault that allegedly took place in 2002.

The decision was made based off of the fact that the statute of limitations has passed, according to documents from the district attorney's office.

The alleged victim in the case was not identified.

This is the second case against the actor that the district attorney's office has declined to prosecute. 

In September, a case against Seagal that dated back to 1993, when the alleged victim was 18 years old, was declined, according to court documents. That case was also dropped due to the statute of limitations.
