It was only 8 months ago that Timothy Busfield went on a date with a woman in Los Angeles and the next day was being accused of sexual assault. Now the actor is engaged to Melissa Gilbert. Timothy was cleared of the sexual assault charges after prosecutors decided there was not enough evidence that Timothy had groped the woman's breasts and genital area without her permission. It is tough to prove a crime like that. Melissa must have liked him though and I guess their dates went better than that one in May. I wonder if he had not been cleared if Melissa would be getting engaged to him.
