HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut prosecutor who investigated Woody Allen on child molestation claims more than 20 years ago but didn't file charges says it's too late for the film director to be prosecuted.
Former Litchfield County state attorney Frank Maco said in a phone interview Sunday with The Associated Press that the statute of limitations on adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's accusations ran out at least 15 years ago.
Maco had said in 1993 that he lacked evidence to prosecute Allen but suspected the abuse did occur. He retired in 2003.
Farrow renewed allegations against Allen in an open letter to The New York Times on Saturday, saying he sexually assaulted her when she was 7 after he and actress Mia Farrow adopted her.
Allen has denied the accusations.
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie's critics are seizing on claims from a former loyalist that the Republican governor knew about massive traffic tie-ups near the George Washington Bridge last year as they were happening.
The lawyer for the former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey executive who ordered them said in a letter released Friday that evidence exists that Christie was aware.
No evidence was presented in the letter.
But the allegation contradicts Christie's claim that he was unaware of the jams until after they happened.
They were the result of lane closures that appear to have been politically motivated.
The Democratic National Committee says the allegations mean that Christie could be forced to talk about things other than Sunday's Super Bowl being held in his state.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The search for a home for President Barack Obama's presidential library is officially underway.
With Obama's blessing, top supporters are launching a foundation that will develop and build the library, which will both house his presidential records and serve as a lasting monument to his legacy.
The nonprofit Barack H. Obama Foundation will be led by a close Obama friend from Chicago, Marty Nesbitt, and by a former White House social secretary and top official in his re-election campaign, Julianna Smoot.
A vigorous competition to host the library has already ramped up. The state where Obama was born, Hawaii, and the state where he has lived for decades, Illinois, have been lobbying the Obamas publicly and privately.
New York, where Obama went to college, also has expressed interest.
