Backstreet Boys Star Nick Carter Will Not Be Charged for Alleged Rape
Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter will not be charged for allegations of rape made by Dream singer Melissa Schuman.
Law enforcement sources revealed that the statute of limitations for the alleged 2003 incident expired in 2013, so the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office will not press charges.
Carter continued, “We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally.”
After the decision, Carter’s attorney Michael Holt, tells us, “Nick Carter was vindicated today when the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office rejected the charges against him.
Nick has denied these allegations ever since he first learned of them last year, and was confident the District Attorney would conclude that there was no basis to pursue charges against him.”
