L.A. District Attorney Explains Why Diddy Can’t Be Prosecuted Over Cassie Ventura Hotel Video

Music mogul and all around trash box Sean “Diddy” Combs can’t be prosecuted for horrific footage which appears to show him assaulting Cassie Ventura — because the incident took place too long ago, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said.

It all comes down to the statute of limitations for assault, and since the date of Diddy’s alleged attack on Ventura at the InterContinental Hotel was March 5, 2016, the DA says the window to prosecute has lapsed.

‘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,’ the LA DA’s office wrote in a statement to Instagram.

The office added that law enforcement hasn’t pursued charges against Diddy, real name Sean Combs, related to the attack seen in video obtained by CNN on Friday.

California’s statute of limitations for simple assault is one year, though aggravated assault is three years. Based on the timeline, neither charge could be levied against Diddy.

I guess when the judicial system fails women in America, the next best thing is to allow the court of public opinion to take people like Diddy down.
