The Hollywood agent accused of groping Terry Crews will not be prosecuted by a Los Angeles DA.
Both the Los Angeles city attorney and the Los Angeles County district attorney reportedly will not prosecute Adam Venit, who Crews said groped him at a Hollywood party back in February of 2016.
It is reported that a district attorney rejected a felony filing and sent the case to the city attorney, who determined that the alleged misdemeanor couldn’t be prosecuted after the one-year statute of limitations expired. The alleged assault took place nearly 21 months before Crews filed a complaint.
If the DA had decided the alleged assault was a felony rather than a misdemeanor, then the statute of limitations would not have applied.
Crews first publicly discussed the incident last November, and said it happened when he was with his wife at a party the previous year.
Venit who is known as a high-ranking executive at William Morris,Crews’ former agency, allegedly began making crude gestures at the actor with his tongue.
“I’m looking and I’m like, is this a joke?” Crews said last year. “And he comes over to me, I stick my hand out and he literally takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals.”
Venit was briefly suspended but is now back at work.
Although the agent will not face criminal charges, Crews will still be suing him in civil court.
