A porn star was fired after a man accused her of sexual assault after she claimed he raped her, a court heard.
An investigation by the NSW Police found the 29-year-old actress was not the accused.
The woman, who has not been named, was allegedly assaulted in the Sydney CBD in May 2016.
She claimed the accused forced himself on her during an alcohol-fuelled party, then drove her home, leaving her naked in a car, the ABC understands.
She was found unconscious on the side of a road, with bruising to her head and genitals.
Police allege the accused then drove to a nearby park and raped her.
He was arrested and charged with sexual assault of a child, but the charge was later dropped.
On Thursday, the woman was formally charged and was given an adjournment of six months.
In a statement, the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions’ Public Prosecution Service (DPPS) said: In this case the alleged offence occurred in NSW and the accused has been charged with two counts of sexual intercourse with a person under 16.
There was insufficient evidence to prove a prima facie case for a conviction and, in the absence of sufficient evidence to make a finding, a caution was given.
As a result, the complainant has been given an opportunity to make representations to the DPP.
Her representation to the NSW DPP will be that she does not believe there is sufficient evidence in this case to proceed to a prosecution.
If convicted of the offence, she will be liable to imprisonment for four years and will be ordered to pay costs.
An earlier version of this story said the alleged rape took place in May.
