LA District Attorney Office looking into case of sexual assault allegation against Sly Stallone
A police report accusing the actor of sexual assault in the 1990s was filed with the Santa Monica Police Department.
The Los Angeles District Attorney office is reviewing a case of sexual assault against Rocky star Sylvestor Stallone that happened in the 90s.
DA office spokesperson Greg Riesling confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the Santa Monica Police Department filed the case with them on Wednesday and their sex crimes team is looking into it.
He refrained from giving any further details about the alleged crime.
A police report accusing the actor of sexual assault in the 1990s was filed to the Santa Monica Police Department. This technically makes the case outside the statute of limitations in California. The actor refuted the allegations via his lawyer in December.
This case has been prolonged since 2017 when a legal representative for Stallone then told The Hollywood Reporter, “We have already notified the police that my client wants to file a claim against the woman for filing a false police report. My client categorically disputes the claim and it is apparent that the woman filed the report to get a media outlet to publish the story."
That was the second time that the Rocky star was accused of sexual assault in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal which rattled Hollywood since the New York Times story broke out on October 5, 2017.
The Daily Mail on November 16, 2017, said that Stallone was accused of sexual assault in Las Vegas by a minor in the 1980s. Though a police report was filed, the charges were never put forth ever since.
Las Vegas police couldn’t confirm that the report had even been filed as too much time had elapsed for it to be retained in the system.
Stallone had vehemently denied the Las Vegas allegations back in 2017 and even now he has denied the veracity of the claims from the 1990s.
