Prosecutors decline to charge Scott Baio in sexual assault charges filed against him by his former TV co-star Nicole Eggert.
The prosecutors have refused to file charges against Scott Baio a result of allegations of his former “Charles in Charge” co-star that he sexually abused her.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office decided Monday not to file charges, said in an evaluation that the limitation period had expired.
Baio former co-star Nicole Eggert has been filed with the police against him in February, claiming that he sexually assaulted her while she was a teenager, and to work with him on the 1980’s sitcom. Alexander Polinsky, another child actor of the show, has claimed that Baio attacked and mentally tortured him.
Baio denies all the allegations and said that he and Eggert were in a consensual relationship when she is of legal age.
His lawyer, Leonard Levine, did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday.
One of Baio’s attorneys, Jennifer McGrath, characterized the claims of Polinsky and Eggert in February as “ever-changing” and evidence of “ongoing hunger for publicity.”
McGrath pointed to a picture of a smiling Polinsky and Baio, which she said was taken on Baio’s birthday party seven years ago.
Brian Glicklich, a spokesman for Baio, reference is made to an interview, Eggert had given years ago, where she said working with Baio on “Charles in Charge” was fun and that she would like to get back with him.
Eggert pointed out on Twitter that the case against Baio was not dismissed because of a lack of evidence, but because of the age of the case.
