Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler accused of sexual assault of minor in new lawsuit

Steven Tyler, the frontman of the classic rock band Aerosmith, has been accused of sexual assault of a minor in a new lawsuit.

Julia Misley, the woman, alleged in a lawsuit filed under the California Child Victims Act that she was sexually abused by Tyler when she was a teenager in the 1970s.

The lawsuit was filed this week in the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles and published online by her attorneys as the three-year grace period lifting the statute of limitations for those who were sexually abused as children was set to expire.

Misley, now 65, wrote in a statement that she learned she had a new opportunity to take legal action because of the change in California law. The rock star is not named in the lawsuit itself and identified in the court documents as “Defendant Doe 1.” READ MORE
