Taylor has filed a lawsuit against Brown for multiple instances of sexual misconduct, including some that occurred in the Pittsburgh area. Brown has denied all allegations.
The Allegheny County District Attorney’s office looked into the case, but say criminal charges can not be filed due to the statute of limitations. There have been no criminal charges filed against Brown since the multiple instances of sexual misconduct have come to light.
Brown was released by the New England Patriots last month after the sexual misconduct lawsuits were levied on the star athlete.
