Embattled actor Armie Hammer will not face sexual assault fees in Los Angeles, the district legal professional’s workplace has introduced.
Director of the Bureau of Communications Tiffiny Blacknell confirmed to CNN that prosecutors “performed an especially thorough assessment” into an allegation of sexual assault towards the “Social Community” star “however decided that presently, there may be inadequate proof to cost Mr. Hammer with a criminal offense.”
In 2021, a lady recognized as Effie alleged Hammer “violently raped me for over 4 hours” in 2017 and “dedicated different acts of violence towards me to which I didn’t consent.” She mentioned she and Hammer had an on-and-off relationship. Hammer denied the allegations and instructed Air Mail that “this alleged rape was a scene that was her thought.” The actor claimed he and Effie each agreed to “interact in what is known as a ‘consensual non-consent scene” and that “each single factor was mentioned beforehand.”
“As a result of complexity of the connection and incapacity to show a non-consensual, forcible sexual encounter we’re unable to show the case past an affordable doubt,” Blacknell instructed CNN.
Hammer mentioned on Instagram he’s “very grateful” to the district legal professional and appears “ahead to starting what can be an extended, tough strategy of placing my life again collectively now that my identify is cleared.” Effie, in the meantime, instructed CNN she is “disenchanted” with the choice to not prosecute Hammer, including that she “felt an obligation to talk out and file a report so as to attempt to maintain Armie accountable for all of the hurt and trauma he has precipitated me and so as to shield different girls from experiencing comparable abuse.”
