The DA’s office concluded of the case, which was reported 10 years later in 2013, “Therefore, an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and the matter is declined.”

READ THE COURT DOCS!

Radar broke that an underage woman came forward in 2003 claiming the Backstreet Boys singer had sex with her when he was 23 years old.

In the police report obtained from Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Carter, now 37, was accused of sexual offense, lewd or lascivious battery by engaging in sexual activity with a person 12 to 16 years old.

On September 24, 2004, the Assistant State Attorney explained that his office was not going to prosecute the case.

“He explained that due to the delay in the victim reporting the incident, the victim portraying that she was 18 and members of the Carter family believing that she was eighteen years of age,” the report read. “The victim was able to travel far from home with no supervision, with her own money and stay for weeks at a time… for those reasons alone … any reasonable person would believe that she were at least that age.”

The victim herself also stated that the sex was consensual with all persons involved in the case.

In November 2017, "Dream" singer Melissa Schuman accused Cater of raping her when she was 18 years old. She submitted a police report against him of the alleged 2006 assault.

A rep for Carter denied the claims.

Radar also broke that Cater was investigated for sexual assault during an alleged incident that took place at his friend’s Key West, Florida home on March 26, 2006 and March 27, 2006.

The victim, who Radar chose to not disclose the identity of, claimed Nick allegedly “unbuttoned her jeans, and slid his hand down her jeans and underpants.”

The report obtained from the West Allis Police Department in Wisconsin continued, “The woman indicated Carter briefly inserted his finger tips into her vagina.”

No charges were brought against Carter and the case was closed in June 2006.

Carter has denied all claims against him.

The ruling comes amid Carter revealed his wife Lauren Kitt suffered a miscarriage while three months pregnant.

The couple married in 2014 and share son Odin.
