Terry Crews' sexual assault case is rejected 

ABC/Paula Lobo(LOS ANGELES) -- Prosecutors have decided not to file charges in Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews' sexual assault case against Hollywood agent Adam Venit, ruling the case is not a felony.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office says in a document obtained by Variety that it rejected the filing because Venit "didn't make contact" with Crews' skin when he grabbed his genitals, adding, "there was no restraint involved."

The case was sent to the L.A. City Attorney for possible misdemeanor prosecution, but was also rejected, due the statute of limitations, which is one year for a misdemeanor.

Crews reported the incident to the Los Angeles Police Department back in November, alleging that Venit had grabbed his crotch at an industry party at Hutchinson restaurant in February 2016.

Crews is also pursuing a civil case against Venit.
