The LA County DA's office, which announced a new sexual assault task force in 2017, reportedly has "one more case to review involving Seagal" as well as another involving Spacey.

Beverly Hills police previous year investigated Seagal after a woman reported he had raped her on January 1, 1993.

This isn't the first time Anthony has had such cases pinned against him.

"The allegation is outside the statute of limitations, therefore an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and prosecution is declined", according to the charge evaluation sheet.

Representatives for Seagal could not be reached for comment.

Prosecutors also declined to prosecute alleged sex crimes against the actors Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson. The accuser refused to co-operate with LAPD investigators, and prosecutors said that lack of information is the reason no charges will be filed. However, the LA district attorney's office decided not to file charges after she "declined to be interviewed by the investigating officer".

Two years ago, California legislators enacted a law eliminating the previous 10-year-old statute of limitations for rape - the most serious of sex crimes - but that does not include offences before 2016.

The Australian said: "It was nearly unreal". "Just the way he goes about things, I could take a leaf out of his book", he said. As per the rules governing the sport, it is not mandatory that the ball has to travel over the net for a shot to count.

The Old Vic theatre said it has received 20 allegations of inappropriate behaviour against Spacey.

United Kingdom police are also looking into several accusations against the actor.

Spacey's publicist in November said the two-time Oscar victor, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen men and boys, was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

"This is not a coming-out story about Kevin Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp and all those who bravely speak out against unwanted sexual advances", Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, said at the time. Since then, several men have come forward to report incidents involving the actor.

She also said she felt sorry for Spacey because of the media glare on his private life, but clarified that she was not condoning his actions or referring to the Me Too movement and the public anger over sexual harassment.

He was dropped previous year from the Netflix television series House of Cards and erased from the film All the Money in the World.
