is continuing to deny allegations of sexual misconduct now the claim against him is being officially reviewed.
The LA District Attorney’s office say they are looking into the case after it was presented to their office by Santa Monica police, who were investigating the complaint made by a woman last November.
“My client categorically denies the allegations,” the 71-year-old actor’s lawyer told CNN. “It’s outrageous that the DA’s office and police department would announce this information because it makes the public think that there’s something there.”
He added that the accuser had previously had a consensual relationship with the Rocky star in the 1980s.
Last year Sylvester’s representatives also denied another sexual assault story when he was accused of forcing a 16-year-old girl to have sex with him and his bodyguard in 1986.
