L.A. District Attorney’s Office Reviewing Sex Crimes Case Against Sylvester Stallone

An incident involving a woman and actor Sylvester Stallone from the 1990s is now under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department District Attorney's office.

A special entertainment task force in the Los Angeles County district attorney's office was handed the case against the Hollywood legend by Santa Monica police, district attorney spokesman Greg Risling confirmed.

A spokesperson for Stallone did not immediately comment.

Earlier last year, the Daily Mail reported that in 1986 a 16-year-old autograph-seeker told Las Vegas police she was sexually assaulted by Stallone and his bodyguard. The first involves the rape allegation from 1990, and a source close to the investigation said that this is the case being reviewed by prosecutors.

California has a complex statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions of sexual abuse but offenses must generally be prosecuted within 10 years.

Stallone is the latest in a string of stars to be accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

A woman claimed the action hero raped her decades ago and she filed a police report with the allegations in November. The DA's office did not specify the timing of the alleged incident or say how long the case would be under review. "At no time was Mr Stallone ever contacted by any authorities or anyone else regarding this matter".

"My client categorically denies the allegations", Stallone's attorney, Martin Singer, told CNN.
