No charges expected for actress, mother
LA County sheriff’s detectives plan to present their findings to prosecutors in two separate investigations involving “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter, law enforcement sources said.
The sources said they doubted either investigation — one focusing on Winter, the other on her mother — would result in charges.
Winter’s mother claims that her daughter’s 18-year-old boyfriend had unlawful sex with the 14-year-old actress. Winter is claiming her mother, Chrisoula Workman, physically abused her.
So far, detectives have not gathered any specific evidence to substantiate the allegations in either investigation involving Ariel, known to millions as Alex Dunphy, the brainy member of “Modern Family’s” Dunphy family.
