*The William Morris Endeavor agent accused of groping Terry Crews will not face criminal charges due to a legal technicality.
The actor’s criminal complaint against his former agent, Adam Venit, has been declined by the Los Angeles County city attorney, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “The matter was referred to our office and was subsequently declined due to the lapse in statute of limitations for misdemeanor cases,” a representative for Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said.
The alleged incident, in which Crews claims Venit “squeezed [his] genitals,” occurred in February, 2016. In the wake of October 2017 reports from The New York Times and New Yorker detailing sexual misconduct by media mogul Harvey Weinstein and the ensuing #MeToo movement, Crews tweeted about the incident, naming Venit. WME shortly thereafter placed Venit on a one-month, unpaid suspension.
Crews filed a police report on Nov. 8, 2017, and a week later Venit returned to work at WME.
The agency had previously claimed in a Jan. 30 court filing this year that, “WME decisively addressed and punished the conduct Mr. Crews alleges that Mr. Venit engaged.”
