Greg Kelly, a co-anchor of “Good Day New York,” won’t be charged with rape, the Manhattan district attorney’s office says.
Kelly, the son of New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, was the subject of an investigation after a woman came to police last month and said Greg Kelly assaulted her in October. After conducting a two-week investigation, though, the DA’s office says “no criminal charges are appropriate.”
“The facts established during our investigation do not fit the definition of sexual assault crimes,” reads a letter from the prosecutor’s office to Kelly’s lawyer, Andrew Lankler, according to The New York Times.
“I am thankful that the investigation established what I’ve known all along, that I am innocent of the allegations that were waged against me,” Kelly says in a statement.
The woman told police in January that she went for drinks with Kelly in October. They then returned to the law office where she worked and he raped her, she said.
Kelly and the woman both cooperated with the investigation, the DA’s letter says.
