Eggert alleges that Baio and she had sexual encounters when she was 14-16 years old during the time they co-starred on Charles in Charge in the late 1980s.
We're told Eggert repeated her claim that Baio had sexual intercourse with her when she was 17. Baio said he had consensual sex with her once, but only after she had turned 18, the legal age of consent. "A witness, Alexander Polinsky, appeared as well and told the detectives about inappropriate touching he witnessed, as well as his own allegations of bullying by Scott Baio". In addition, Nicole's attorney gave the detectives a list of witnesses who claim they observed inappropriate behavior by Scott toward Nicole.
Defending the allegations, Baio pointed to a 2013 audio interview Eggert did with a website The Dirty in which she had laughed about their relationship. She tweeted, "Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor".
"Nicole answered all of their questions for over an hour and told her story of sexual abuse by Scott Baio when she was a minor".
"If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us".
"I was 15 years old standing on the bridge over the L.A. River at Ventura and Vineland in Studio City, and I looked down at that dry river bed and I'm sobbing, I'm sobbing", she tells ET. The new law, signed in September 2016, states there is no statute of limitations for sex crimes against a minor committed after January 1, 2017. She's now fielding requests on social media for anyone who may have witnessed the alleged incidents.

Baio was quick to come forward with a denial of the accusations against him, first taking to Facebook Live to explain his side of the story, calling Eggert's credibility into question. However, for crimes that date years before that, "prosecution for the crimes of rape, sodomy, lewd or lascivious acts, continuous sexual abuse of a child, oral copulation, and sexual penetration, if committed against a victim who was under 18 years of age, may be commenced at any time prior to the victim's 40th birthday".
"We've been demanding since past year that Nicole Eggert bring her story to the authorities", Baio's rep told the site.
"My reputation is being damaged, my family is being put through this, and I'm done", Baio added.
"Nicole didn't know what the statute of limitations was, but apparently the police are doing active investigations into a lot of these high-profile, older cases", Weintraub said.
"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible".
"In those days I had moments of being so hurt and so upset, and even thoughts of ending my life", she says.
