Legendary actor, writer, and director Sylvester Stallone has recently had his number called in the #MeToo movement as a spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney's office has announced on Wednesday (June 13) that they are now reviewing a sex crime case where he has been accused of foul play.
The L.A. District Attorney’s office spokesperson, Greg Risling tells CNN that the Santa Monica Police Department handed them the case after it was reported to law enforcement in November 2017.
Lt. Saul Rodriguez of the Santa Monica Police also tells CNN that the alleged incident involving the Rocky franchise star took place sometime during the ‘90s. However, the authorities did not reveal any specific detail in regard to the nature of the serious allegation against Stallone.
"My client categorically denies the allegations," Stallone's attorney, Martin Singer, told CNN in a statement."It's outrageous that the DA's office and PD would announce this information because it makes the public think that there's something there."
Although California ended the statute of limitations on different types sex crimes, such as rape, forcible sodomy and molestation of a child back in 2016, the recently revised law, unfortunately, applies only to crimes committed after January 1, 2017 in addition to crimes that the statute of limitations had not expired by that date.
For now, the case is being reviewed by a Los Angeles County task force that investigates sex crimes in the entertainment industry.
