The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Issues Statement On Why Diddy Won’t Be Charged With A Crime Despite Leaked Video.

On Friday (May 17), the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office issued a statement via Instagram explaining why Diddy won’t be prosecuted after leaked surveillance footage showed him allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura at a Los Angeles hotel.

The LA County DA said they couldn’t press criminal charges against Diddy due to the statute of limitations.

“We are aware of the video that has been circulating online allegedly depicting Sean Combs assaulting a young woman in Los Angeles,” the statement reads. “We find the images extremely disturbing and difficult to watch. If the conduct depicted occurred in 2016, unfortunately we would be unable to charge as the conduct would have occurred beyond the timeline where a crime of assault can be prosecuted.”

“As of today, law enforcement has not presented a case related to the attack depicted in the video against Mr. Combs, but we encourage anyone who has been a victim or witness to a crime to report it to law enforcement or reach out to our office for support from our Bureau of Victims Services,” the statement concluded.
