Sylvester Stallone sexual assault case is being reviewed by LA district attorney

The Los Angels County District Attorney's Office is now reviewing a sexual assault case against actor Sylvester Stallone. Police didn't say anything about the nature of the allegation against Stallone. A criminal allegation dating to the 1990s can not be charged under California law because it is past the statute of limitations that existed at the time.

A spokesperson for Stallone did not immediately comment.

Stallone has been enjoying a career boost lately, in part due to the box-office success of his "Expendables" franchise, as well as "Creed", the critically-acclaimed and popular 2015 sequel to "Rocky" that netted him a supporting-actor Oscar nomination (his first since the original film).
