Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter Will Not Be Prosecuted For Alleged Rape

Share

Melissa Schuman, 33, claimed back in November that the Backstreet Boys star had forced her into having sex with him at his home in 2003, but six months after she filed a police report against him, Los Angeles authorities have confirmed they won't be taking further action because the statute of limitations for prosecution expired in 2013.

Schuman - who used to be part of the girl band Dream - wrote a blog post saying Carter raped her in 2003 when she was 18 and he was 22.

She said that Carter then demanded she perform oral sex on him before taking her to his room and raping her despite her allegedly telling him she was waiting until marriage to have sex.

The Associated Press generally doesn't name people who say they were sexually assaulted but Schuman has come forward publicly to speak about her experience and approves of the use of her name. We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally.

The Dream singer went public with her claims a year ago and eventually filed a police report in Los Angeles in February, claiming Carter forced himself on her while they were hanging out at his home during a break from their movie The Hollow, when she was 18.

Carter has denied the allegation.

Carter, 38, feels vindicated that no charges will be brought against him, according to his lawyer.

Holt added, "He is happy to put this matter behind him".

She admitted she was "well aware of the likelihood that my case was not prosecutable", but that it had still provided her with "great solace" to know that her case had been documented by law enforcement.
