Carolina Promoter Online gets the inside scoop Terry Crews in the courts over the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star’s sexual assault allegations, WME agent Adam Venit s now facing a probe by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office over the alleged 2016 incident. “A case was presented to our office on February 6 by the Los Angeles Police Department involving Adam Venit and is under review,” L.A. County D.A. spokesman Ricardo Santiago.
Crews was not officially identified as the accuser, but the actor who was among the Silence Breakers that made up Time‘s Person of the Year 2017, is the other party in the matter. No further information of the specifics of the LAPD’s investigation into what happened between Crews and the now-former head of WME’s Motion Picture Group almost two years ago were disclosed, but a law enforcement source tells us that the dossier the department compiled and sent to D.A. Jackie Lacey’s office was “thorough.”
After the review process is completed by the District Attorney’s office and the special task force Lacey announced in November, Venit’s case could head toward prosecution, get tossed, or be heaved over to City Attorney Mike Feuer for misdemeanor charges and possible prison time.
“December 5, Crews filed a nine-claim sexual assault and sexual battery complaint against Venit and WME, citing a “long history of bizarre behavior” on the part of Venit. Claiming that the agency knew about such alleged misconduct and covered it up, Crews and his lawyers asserted that “a message needs to be sent to those in power who abuses those over whom they can exert influence and control that abuse and sexual predatory behavior will not be tolerated.”
“For these reasons, and until the Court hears all of the evidence, it should not accept Mr. Crews’ allegations against WME,” the response added.
That case continues as the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office contemplates what move it will make next.
