Timothy Busfield

Prosecutors REJECT

Sexual Assault Complaint

Prosecutors will NOT charge Timothy Busfield with sexual assault, for allegedly groping a date at an L.A. movie theater.

TMZ broke the story ... a woman claimed the star of "The West Wing," "thirtysomething" and "Revenge of the Nerds" groped her in the breast and genital areas while they were kissing, and she felt it was an unwanted touching. Must have been a really bad movie.

The L.A. City Attorney has concluded there is insufficient evidence to go forward with the matter, so no charges will be filed.

As for Busfield ... we strongly recommend Netflix.

She could have just slugged him and saved everyone's time.

He should have just pulled a Louis and ran off and yelled "I love you when you're mad!"

It was a date. Guys try and get some on dates. They don't always succeed, but sane women will put a stop to the groping without calling the cops. Sheesh!

Good. Timothy has NEVER been in trouble and it's hard to imagine that you become a sex offender in your 50's. The woman thought she could get some $$$ from him.

PLEASE TMZ find the accuser's name and post a pic of her so other guys can avoid going out with her!!
I assume most men would like to avoid sexual assault accusations and other character ASSassanations.
There are lots of women out there to date, minus the BS!! She's made herself a very un-datable woman.

Leave him alone. This is as close to sex as gingers get.

If they weren't on a date and he just randomly groped some woman near him the theater, that would be assault. This was just a date that got off to a too-early start . . .

Men grope. Women grope. Groping makes babies. Groping is the only reason any of us are here right now.
God gave us groping for the survival of the human species.
If you're groping, you're doing a divine service to all humankind ;)

Men are pigs and they get way with sexual assaults all the time. Letting someone kiss you doesn't mean you are allowing them to assault you.

Well, duh. Of course they did. The general public has absolutely no clue, what sexist pigs a number of DA are. Wait. Here's an inkling for those who think DAs are all about the "search for the truth" Go ahead, grab your clues. Pick a state!

Remember ladies, it is not assault if you do not hint at it being unwanted contact before, during, or immediately after it occurs. If you wait a week before reporting anything, people will not believe you when you say you communicated to the man to stop it.

So the kissing was OK but the tit grab premature? What is that some new freaking rule I didn't hear about? Sexual assault for a premature ill timed tittty grab? When I was in high school we used to pinch the chicks right on the azzz and most of em loved it. Lord has this dump changed for the worse. Feminists and hoodies and illegals have turned it into a third PC filled dump. Have fun kids when we're gone and can't protect you from all these freaking third worlder's and Mooz itching to bring America to its knees.
