Trey Songz’s sexual assault case dismissed

A sexual assault civil suit brought against Trey Songz has been dismissed after legal documents proved the statute of limitations had expired on the allegations, reports TMZ. 

In February this year, a woman who identified as Jane Doe in court documents had claimed Songz, 38. forced her to have sex against her consent at a house party in Los Angeles on March 26, 2016.

Songz has vehemently denied the accusations.

At the time of the alleged assault (before January 1, 2019), the statute of limitations in California to file a civil claim for sexual assault if the victim is over 18 was two years.

The alleged victim filed her complaint six years after the alleged rape. She was suing Songz for $20million in damages. 

The publication reports that Songz’s suit was thrown out on Monday after attorneys for the star successfully argued the statute of limitations had expired well before the alleged victim reported the complaint.
