According to reports, Terry Crews assault case against the agent for WME, Adam Venit, has been dropped by the court. In a report from E! Online, the Los Angeles City Attorney and LA County District Attorney rejected the complaint.
The document claims the criminal complaint isn’t valid because there was never skin-on-skin contact and no restraint was involved. The LA District Attorney and the City Attorney formally denied the request.
Furthermore, the request to indict Adam on the crimes was rejected due to its failure to adhere to the statute of limitations. Reportedly, a person intending to charge another with misdemeanor assault offense needs to do so within precisely one year.
As it was previously reported, Terry came forward with his claims of sexual impropriety back in October of 2017 in the middle of the #MeToo movement which took society and the media by storm.
The Longest Yard alum took to Twitter to claim the “whole Harvey Weinstein” thing was giving him post-traumatic stress disorder. The actor went on to explain the incident which took place in February of 2016 at a Hollywood party attended by entertainers and executives.
Terry alleged that the agent walked right over to him and grabbed him by the genitals in front of his wife and everyone there. Crews walked over to Adam Sandler – whom Adam Venit supposedly represents – and asked, “is this your boy?”
Following the resurfacing of the supposed transgression, Adam lost his job at WME for thirty days and faced an internal investigation. According to Terry, Adam even apologized the next day for his behavior.
When speaking with E! News at the GQ Men Of The Year party, the actor claimed his lawsuit against the agent wasn’t about revenge.
It was about holding people accountable for their actions regardless of their status and power. Terry claimed the issue is that those who are influential use the “structures and powers that be” to avoid retribution. It’s unjust.
