LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors have decided not to file charges against a talent agent whom actor Terry Crews said groped him at a Hollywood party.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said Adam Venit, an agent at William Morris Endeavor, twice grabbed Crews by the groin, but because there was no contact with his skin, and no restraint involved, the allegations were not a felony.

They sent the case to the Los Angeles city attorney, who prosecutes misdemeanors. The city attorney’s office said Wednesday the statute of limitations for them to prosecute Venit had expired. The party was in February 2016. Crews did not report the incident until November 2017.

Crews has also filed a lawsuit against Venit.

After-hours messages seeking comment from Venit’s office and Crews’ publicist were not immediately returned.

    Kates1221, I agree totally AND to add insult to injury, why is it NOT Felony because he was groped over his clothes? AND if not a Felony, can he not be charged with at a different level? I don’t get it at all!

      There has always been a double standard for women & men when it comes to sexual harassment. Men are never taken seriously. If a man gets his balls juggled everyone assumes he liked it.

  2. Why does the statute of limitations apply in Crew’s case, but not any of the other cases with all these old fossils tumbling out of their tombs making accusations of being “fondled” or “inappropriately touched” after 20, 30, or 40 years of slithering around and saying nothing until they stumbled upon a chance to cash in?
