+LA Declines Charges Against Son of NYPD Commissioner Kelly


Manhattan prosecutors have decided not to file rape charges against a son of Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly after a two-week investigation of a woman's accusation that he had attacked her inside the Lower Manhattan law office where she worked, reports the New York Times. The office of the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr., said in a letter that “the facts established during our investigation do not fit the definition of sexual assault crimes.”

The accusations came to light after the woman, who is in her late 20s or early 30s, walked into the 13th Precinct station house on Jan. 24 and told the police that she had met Greg Kelly, 43, on the street, and went for drinks with him at the South Street Seaport a few days later. Afterward, she said, they returned to her office, where, she said, he raped her. Kelly is a television news anchor in New York. The investigation of the case included security logs, text messages, receipts and phone records. Prosecutors said they interviewed the accuser and Kelly, “both of whom were cooperative.”
