But according to court documents obtained by Radar, the district attorneys newly created sexual assault task force declined the case because too much time has passed since the alleged incidents.

“Statues of limitations for potential criminal charges have expired,” the documents state. “Sexual assault charge cannot be filed due to absence of corroboration.

This doesn’t mean Manson, 49, is not guilty of a crime, just that time has run out for his accuser to press charges.

The Sex Assault Task Force also declined to press charges on producer and filmmaker Murray Miller, fitness entrepreneur Michael Torchia, and ASAP Bari, the co-founder of ASAP Mob and streetwear clothing VLONE, whose real name is Jabari Shelton.
