Los Angeles DA Won't Pursue Sex-Assault Cases Against Marilyn Manson, ‘Girls’ Writer

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced Friday that it won’t be pursuing sexual-assault cases against musician Marilyn Manson and Girls writer Murray Miller, Variety reports. Two charges made against Manson in 2011 were dismissed because of the statute of limitations, and the sexual-assault claim had an “absence of corroboration.” Miller’s case won’t be pursued due to an expired statute of limitations and “inconsistencies which cannot be overcome” in the evidence, authorities said. Actress Aurora Perrineau accused Miller of sexual assault in late 2017. The writer’s lawyers then claimed Perrineau demanded money from Miller—but they later retracted that claim, saying it was “incorrect and the result of a “good-faith misunderstanding.” This comes after the D.A.’s office announced that it would be pursuing cases against actors Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal, and former producer Harvey Weinstein.
