Earlier this year, Santa Monica police confirmed it was investigating Carter after a victim filed a police report.

Melissa Schuman claims Carter raped her in 2003, when she was 18 and he was 22.

Carter has denied the allegations, which first surfaced in November.

It's unknown if Schuman's case was the one presented to the DA's office.
