Prosecutors Reviewing Stallone Sexual Assault Allegation

Los Angeles prosecutors said on Wednesday that their sex crimes team was reviewing a case against Rocky actor Sylvester Stallone.

This won't be the first time that Stallone has had allegations of sexual misconduct levied against him.

If that is the alleged case under review, it is not clear how it could be prosecuted now under the statute of limitations in effect in California at the time.

In December, Stallone's lawyer said that a woman had "filed a police report alleging a rape that occurred 27 years ago".

Berk could not be immediately reached for comment.
