Marilyn Manson, Murray Miller Sexual Assault Cases Declined by L.A. District Attorney

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office said on Friday that it has declined to prosecute sexual assault cases leveled against musician Marilyn Manson and “Girls” writer Murray Miller.

According to documents from the D.A.’s office, the charges leveled against Manson (the stage name for Brian Miller) in 2011 have been dismissed due to expired statute of limitations on two charges and an absence of corroboration for a sexual assault claim.

Miller’s charges were declined due to expired statute of limitations and for “inconsistencies which cannot be overcome” based on the evidence presented. Miller was accused last year of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau.

Said Marilyn Manson’s lawyer, Howard E. King, in a statement: “Under current policy, the Los Angeles County District Attorney must investigate any claim of sexual abuse, no matter how outlandish. It is not surprising that the District Attorney, after investigation, summarily rejected the claims made in a police report filed by a former acquaintance against Brian Warner p/k/a Marilyn Manson. The allegations made to the police were and are categorically denied by Mr. Warner and are either completely delusional or part of a calculated attempt to generate publicity for the claimant’s business of selling Manson memorabilia. The police report that spurred the investigation was accompanied by the woman’s press release and other attempts to generate publicity that fraudulently claimed she was held captive by Mr. Warner for 48 hours in 2011. Any claim of sexual impropriety or imprisonment at that, or any other, time is false.”

The District Attorney’s office also released declination forms for ASAP Bari, co-founder of ASAP Mob and streetwear clothing label VLONE. The rapper was accused of sexual assault in 2017, but will not be prosecuted after the victim decided not to proceed with the criminal case, according to a court filing.

Fitness entrepreneur Michael Torchia will also not be prosecuted due to insufficient evidence.

The charges were leveled during the #MeToo movement last fall. Several high-profile cases are still being investigated, including that against the disgraced former movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who is facing accusations from more than 40 women.
