connectVideoSteven Seagal hit with allegations of sexual abuse
Los Angeles district attorney declined to file sexual assault against Steven Seagal for a second time, Variety reports, citing the statute of limitations in the complaint had expired.
A woman allegedly claimed to the POLICE that the action star raped her in 2002. The victim was not identified, but lawyer Lisa Bloom told the press that the accuser was a woman who they represented.
In March, Bloom organized a press conference for Seagal accusers Faviola I feel and Regina Simons, in which the women detailed their shocking allegations against the actor.

With the news that He would not be charged, Bloom said in a statement, “We appreciate the DA’s office is a careful review of this matter. Her hands and feet are bound by this unjust law, which bars the courthouse door, even for young women like my client, Faviola I feel, which is very credible. The law fails to recognize that some minors are emotionally ready to seek justice against their rapists until many years later. Instead, it gives rapists a “get out of jail free’ card if they are just a random time period. And the law seems to presume that the victims are, the creation of an unreasonably heavy standard not required in other criminal cases. Some rapists commit their crimes in the presence of witnesses.”
In September, the D. A. declined to charge Seagal with sexual assault over an alleged 1993 incident, also allegedly as a result of the limitation period expired.
