Terry Crews' groping case against Adam Venit gets rejected

The Los Angeles County District Attorney and L.A. City Attorney have both rejected Terry Crews's criminal complaint against William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit.

The Los Angeles County D.A. argued that the alleged conduct never rose up to the level of a felony.

"The matter was referred to our office and was subsequently declined due to the lapse in statute of limitations for misdemeanor cases", the representative said.

The statute of limitations for misdemeanors is one year. A month after going public, Crews filed a police report about the incident. "I don't understand. It was actually so freakish", Crews said.

Crews has also filed a civil lawsuit against Venit, seeking monetary and punitive damages for assault, battery, sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

The former American football player then filed a report against Venit with the Los Angeles Police Department on November 8, 2017, and a week later, Venit resumed his work at WME.

ET's Kevin Frazier spoke with Crews and his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, back in February, and the 49-year-old actor opened up about being one of the most vocal male figures in the Me Too movement.

"The reason I did come out in the first place is because the women weren't getting support, and that was the thing", he shared.
