Sexual battery case against Seal dropped due to lack of evidence

Sexual battery case against Seal dropped due to lack of evidence

She also pointed out that when she rejected his advances, he insinuated that she was asking for it because of the attire - a tank top and shorts - she was wearing at the time.

Birdsall came forward after Seal posted a Facebook video on January 11, labeled #TellTheTruth, in which he called himself a supporter of the Me Too movement to call out sexual abuse and urged women to come forward with their stories.

Last month, a rep for Seal unequivocally denied Birdsall's accusations, telling the New York Post, "Seal vehemently denies the recent accusations made against him by a former neighbour for alleged misconduct of more than a year ago".

When Seal made his move on Tracey, she jumped back and denied him.

Byron attended one semester on Liberty's campus in 2016, but because of his racing commitments he now takes classes online. Opened in 1959, the 2.5-mile oval was meant to replace the Daytona Beach Road Course with a faster alternative.

The singer, therefore, will not be facing criminal charges of any kind in the complaint that was filed by his former neighbor.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office will not be pursuing the sexual battery case against Seal.

However, because of the delay in reporting the incident, the statute of limitations has run its course, the D.A.'s office noted, adding that the lack of witnesses or evidence to corroborate her claim would have made it hard to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt. Further, the alleged incident took place in February 2016, meaning the statute of limitations has expired.

Late Monday, Birdsall issued a statement to USA TODAY, saying she was glad she came forward if for nothing else that it helped her prepare for a "very difficult" scene in a forthcoming movie. "To those of you who haven't spoken up, there is no shame in doing so, but also no glory".
