The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office declined to bring charges against the actor stemming from alleged sexual assaults in the late '80s and early '90s. The D.A. opted not to file against Stallone, citing both insufficient evidence and the fact that the allegations fall outside of the state's statute of limitations for sexual assault.
“Victim and suspect had a consensual relationship in 1987,” the office said in a worksheet about the case. “The victim alleged assaults in 1987 and 1990 and provided fresh complaint witnesses. However, none of the witnesses corroborated victim’s allegations. Additional investigation did not provide any further corroboration [...] there is insufficient evidence to support a filing in addition to the allegations being outside the statute of limitations. ”
At the time that the woman filed a police report accusing Stallone of assaulting her in his office in 1990, the actor called the charges "completely fabricated." His lawyer, Marty Singer, said that he had witnesses who could corroborate Stallone's story.
“We have two witnesses who have come forward to deny her statements," Singer said. "One woman came forward and said that she was asked to lie for this woman to say it occurred. We have nothing to hide here.”
It's not the only time Stallone has been accused of sexual misconduct. He was also accused of coercing a teen to have sex with himself and his bodyguard in 1986, a charge he also denies.
