Armie Hammer Won’t Face Sexual Assault Charges

Lyndon Abioye |

Los Angeles prosecutors say they will not be charging Hollywood actor Armie Hammer with sexual assault after he was accused two years ago of rape by several of his exes.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office wrote that “there is insufficient evidence” to charge Hammer, citing “the complexity of the relationship and inability to prove a non-consensual, forcible sexual encounter,” spokesperson Tiffiny Blacknell said.

Hammer released a statement via Instagram.

“I am very grateful to the District Attorney for conducting a thorough investigation and coming to the conclusion that I have stood by this entire time, that no crime was committed. I look forward to beginning what will be a long, difficult process of putting my life back together now that my name is cleared,” he wrote.

In an interview with Air Mail months back, Hammer denied the rape and cannibal accusations but admitted to being emotionally abusive.

“I would have these younger women in their mid-20s, and I’m in my 30s,” he told the outlet. “I was a successful actor at the time. They could have been happy to just be with me and would have said yes to things that maybe they wouldn’t have said yes to on their own. That’s an imbalance of power in the situation.”
