Son of NYPD Commissioner Kelly Accused of Rape


New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly was on the defensive two days after reports surfaced that a paralegal accused his son Greg, 43, of rape, reports the New York Daily News. The woman, 30, asserted that at the end of a boozy date on Oct. 8, she led Kelly, a Fox TV newsman, to her Wall Street-area law office, where she was raped while in a drunken stupor.

She told investigators she got pregnant and had an abortion. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office, which has seen two headline grabbing rape cases fall apart recently, will make sure they have the goods on Kelly before they charge him in the case, experts said. Defense attorney Joseph Tacopina said the fact that the woman waited three months to report the alleged rape is bound to give prosecutors pause. The woman's claim she was drunk — and that Greg Kelly took advantage of her — will make prosecutors even more reluctant to press the case, he said.
