The Los Angeles County District Attorney and L.A. City Attorney have both rejected Terry Crews's criminal complaint against William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit.
As the #MeToo movement picked up steam late last year, Crews came forward to accuse the Hollywood agent of groping him at an industry party. He alleges that several people, including his own wife, witnessed the incident. "People need to be held accountable," Crews told Good Morning America host Michael Strahan in November. "This is the deal about Hollywood. It is an abuse of power. This guy, again, he's one of the most powerful men in Hollywood and he looked at me at the end as if, 'Who is going to believe you?'"
At the time of the alleged sexual assault, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor stayed silent for fear that he would be blackballed in the industry. Shortly after his nationwide testimony, Crews filed a police report and announced plans to file a civil lawsuit. The 49-year-old said he would be going after Venit on all fronts when TMZ caught up with him outside of a Los Angeles police station back in November of 2017.
The D.A. rejected the case because Crews' allegations did not constitute as a felony. The case was then sent to the City Attorney, who determined that the statute of limitations had run out (the incident occurred in February 2016, past the one-year mark.)
