Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter will not be charged for the alleged rape of Dream singer Melissa Schuman, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has announced. Schuman made the accusation in a blog post in November 2018, saying that the incident allegedly occurred at his Santa Monica apartment in 2003 when she was 18; in a statement following the accusation, Carter claimed the sexual contact was consensual. She reported the alleged assault to police in February 2018, but, according to the DA, the statute of limitations in the case expired in 2013 and they cannot proceed with charges.

Update, 3:40 p.m. ET: Schuman has released a statement to the Hollywood Reporter responding to the news that her case will not move forward:
