Prosecutors: James Levine will not face charges

- Prosecutors have decided not to charge James Levine after he was accused of sexually abusing teenagers, including a young man from St. Paul.

Levine, a prominent conductor of the New York Metropolitan Opera, was accused by three men. One of the men is former St. Paul Chamber Orchestra bassist Christopher Brown.

The complaint was filed in Illinois in 2016, but authorities there say they ultimately decided not to press charges. They said state laws at the time made it difficult to pursue the case, as well as challenges in compiling evidence.

Levine has denied all the allegations.
