Now that the smoke is settling from the MeToo melee, it looks like both Kevin Spacey and Steven Seagal will be beating their charges. Mostly because the LA prosecutor and DA refuse to press any. It’s a shame that sexual assault accusations expire faster than Bed Bath & Beyond coupons but it’s not like these accusers missed the statute of limitations date to say something by a day or two, it’s more like 20 plus years. The MeToo movement is more like a bunch of has-beens upset that they’ve missed the bus and a meal ticket. You can’t have a change of heart about that one night stand when an influential movie star stuck their thumb up your butt almost an entire lifetime later and expect justice.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office announced on Tuesday that it has declined to press sexual assault charges against Steven Seagal.
The announcement came from the special task force created by the DA to investigate sexual assault allegations in Hollywood. The task force ruled that the statute of limitations had expired on the alleged assault, which the accuser says occurred in 1993 when she was 18 years old.
Kevin Spacey won’t face charges stemming from accusations that he sexually assaulted an acquaintance in 1992, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.
“The reporting party alleged that he was the victim of a sexual assault by the suspect in 1992,” paperwork from the district attorney’s office said. “The allegation is outside the statute of limitations, therefore, an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and prosecution is declined.”
Even if Seagal and Spacey avoid being charged for the other accusations that are still under review, they’ve lost in the court of public opinion. Everyone has probably already burned their entire VHS collection after learning that Steven allegedly likes to practice new kung fu moves on the ladies in the nude without consent. And House of Cards had a great run. Until Kevin was outed as a homosexual and possible pedophile. Now Kevin can’t be within 20 feet of a Chuckie Cheese for any reason without it headlining TMZ.
