(NEW YORK) — A New York prosecutor considering rape allegations against Greg Kelly, a Fox TV local morning anchor who is the son of the city’s police commissioner, has decided not to bring charges in the case.
Kelly’s lawyer, Andrew Lankler, met Tuesday evening with the lead prosecutor, the head of the Manhattan district attorney’s sex crime unit, according to sources, and left with a letter informing him that, following the investigation, it was determined the allegations against Kelly did not meet the standard of criminal prosecution and no charges would be brought.
Kelly had taken time off from his job while the office of Manhattan District Attorney’s Cyrus R. Vance Jr. investigated a New York woman’s rape allegations made last month.
