“Nick has denied these allegations ever since he first learned of them last year, and was confident the district attorney would conclude that there was no basis to pursue charges against him,” lawyer Michael Holtz said in a statement. “He is happy to put this matter behind him.”
Carter said in November that he was “shocked and saddened” when Schuman said he had invited her to his Santa Monica apartment in 2003 and sexually assaulted her.
Schuman said Tuesday that it gives her “great solace” to know that her case has been documented by law enforcement.
“Speaking out was the best thing I could have ever done for myself,” she said, “and I hope it inspires others to do the same if it feels right for them.”
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.
