(KNX 1070) -- Los Angeles County prosecutors announced today that they have declined to file criminal charges against a trio of celebrities accused of sexual assault.

Academy Award-winning actor, best known from "House of Cards," Kevin Spacey for an alleged assault against a man in West Hollywood in 1992; Steven Seagal from an allegation dating back to 1993,  and "Black-ish" star, Anthony Anderson for allegations that arose within the past year.

Prosecutors cited the statute of limitations involving the investigations into the allegations against Spacey and Seagal and in the allegations against Anderson, prosecutors said the alleged victim declined to be interviewed.

Seagal was accused by a woman named Regina Simons, who claimed the actor raped her in 1993 when she was 18. He has also vehemently denied any wrongdoing, taking to social media to blast allegations raised by Simons and other actresses as a "modern day witch hunt."

Anderson had been accused of assault by a woman who catered an event organized by the actor, according to the celebrity news site The Blast. He strongly denied the allegation.

The District Attorney's Office confirmed last month it was reviewing another potential case against both Seagal and Spacey.
