Several months ago, we brought you all the breaking news story of former ‘Glee’ star Mark Salling being indicted for possessing child pornography but according to recent reports, Salling will not be charged over an alleged rape charge.
Mark Salling was originally accused of forcing himself on a woman after she changed her mind about initially wanting sex with the celebrity, but the case will not be moving forward because the alleged victim waited four years to report the crime to the authorities.
In a charge evaluation sheet, which has been obtained by the New York Post’s Page Six column, Deputy District Attorney Emily T. Spear from the Los Angeles County District Attorney wrote:
“I personally interviewed the victim. She appeared very emotional over the trauma inflicted upon her and presents as a credible and accurate historian of the events surrounding the rape. However, given the delay in reporting the crime, suspect’s apparent denial of the rape in victim’s pretext to call him and lack of other corroboration, there is insufficient evidence at this time, to file this case.”
Reportedly in her documents, the woman claimed that the two had entered a room to have sex but then changed her mind and said “I can’t do this“, but Mark refused to stop.
However, the female has previously claimed that she continued to have consensual sex with Mark Salling because she had lost her virginity to him.
Mark Salling has denied the child pornography accusations and is currently on bail but has been ordered to stay at least 100 feet away from schools, parks, arcades and other places of the sort, while his passport has been surrendered and any devices that can connect to the internet have to be approved by the police.
Watching this mess play out is so disheartening. Is there a statue of limitations on rape?
