Mark Salling won’t face rape charge
Los Angeles, Nov 1 (IANS) “Glee” actor Mark Salling, who was accused of forcing himself on a woman after she changed her mind about wanting sex, won’t face a rape charge.
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 LA 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.”
The 22-year-old alleged victim filed a police report in April this year against Salling after embarking on a romance with the former “Glee” star after meeting in a hotel bar in 2012, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The woman reportedly claimed in the documents they had entered a room to have sex but she then changed her mind and said “I can’t do this”, yet he refused to stop.
However, the woman has previously claimed she continued to have consensual sex with Salling because she had lost her virginity to him.
In the document, it read: “She believed that she was married to suspect because she lost her virginity to him and stated that was why she continued to consent to sex with him.”
Meanwhile, the actor has denied child pornography accusations and is currently on bail. He has been ordered to stay at least 100 feet away from schools, parks, arcades and many other places of that sort, while his passport has been surrendered and any devices that can connect to the internet have to be approved by the authorities.
