Allegheny DA won't prosecute Brown because of statute

According to the Allegheny County district attorney, a statute of limitations issue prevents prosecutors from filing charges against Brown, who was accused by former trainer Britney Taylor of sexual assault and rape. The federal lawsuit filed by Taylor says Brown sexually assaulted her twice during training sessions in June 2017, exposing himself and kissing her without consent in the first incident. Taylor alleges that back in 2017, there were two instances of sexual assault in Pennsylvania.

"Our office, along with the Allegheny County Police Department, made contact with counsel for the plaintiff in the federal lawsuit involving Antonio Brown", Zappala's spokesman Mike Manko wrote in an email to the Tribune-Review.

Brown, through his attorney, has denied the allegations. "Procedurally, it appears there is a statute of limitations issue in moving forward with any inquiry involving the Allegheny County allegation mentioned in the lawsuit". A third incident alleged in Taylor's lawsuit was said to have taken place in 2018 and could potentially be investigated. The one-year deal Brown signed earlier this month with the Patriots could be worth as much as $15 million.

Brown is now a wide received for the New England Patriots, and is said will be playing in the week three game.

The NFL interviewed Taylor for 10 hours on Monday, though it's unclear if Brown will interview with the league as well. It also alleges two more assaults, including forcible rape, at Brown's home in Miami, Florida in May of 2018.

Brown's lawyer, Darren Heitner, said in a statement last week that his client and Taylor were involved in a "consensual personal relationship". In his debut for the Patriots, Brown caught 4 passes for 56 yards and a touchdown.
