BEVERLY HILLS—Saudi Arabian prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, who was arrested on September 23 in his Beverly Glen home and accused of committing a sexual assault, will not be charged, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
The verdict was announced on Monday, October 19, that Al-Saud will not be charged for allegedly forcing his employees into oral copulation inside of his $37 million compound, but could still face misdemeanor charges, according to reports from CNN.
Reasons for the charges being dropped include insufficient evidence, despite reports that a woman had claimed Al-Saud forced her into performing sexual acts. The suit will still proceed, regardless of charges placed on the Saudi Arabian prince. Accusations allegedly include assault, battery, sexual discrimination and retaliation against workers.
The findings come after the District Attorney’s Office handed over the case to municipal authorities, according to a CNN news report.
Since the incident has transpired, three women have allegedly come forth to sue the prince. Whether or not the prince has diplomatic immunity is unknown at this time. Al-Saud has since fled the country. The victim’s names have not been released to the public, however according to CNN News, court papers refer to the women as Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2 and Jane Doe 3.
Canyon News reached out to both attorneys, handling both sides of the case but no further statements have been released on the case at this time.
