New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown won’t be prosecuted on sexual assault accusations because of the statute of limitations, according to Pittsburgh-area legislation enforcement.
Britney Taylor is bringing a civil suit against Brown for an episode in June 2017.
“The office, along with the Allegheny County Police Department, made contact counsel for the plaintiff in the federal suit involving Antonio Brown,” the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office wrote in a statement.
“Procedurallyit appears there’s a statute of limitations issue in moving forward with any question involving the Allegheny County allegation mentioned in the litigation.”
The NFL proceeds to investigate and has interviewed Taylor, but it is not known if Brown will be interviewed by the league.
Taylor claims Brown sexually attacked her on three occasions, including after in Pittsburgh, where the receiver played for nine seasons with the Steelers, and twice in Florida.
ESPN has reported until the suit was filed that Brown, who hired Taylor as a trainer when they attended Central Michigan at precisely the identical moment, turned down a 2m settlement.
Confidential talks between the two parties were held, and it was determined unless conditions of the confidentiality was breached, the Patriots would not have known about the allegations.
Darren Heitner, Brown’s lawyer, said in an announcement last week that his client was at a”consensual private relationship” by Taylor.
