The woman who is accusing Greg Kelly, broadcast journalist and son of NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, of sexually assaulting her is also alleging that she became pregnant as a result.
Reports are that the woman told the NYPD that she had a few drinks with Kelly, 43, on Oct. 8, 2011. The pair also reportedly stopped by the South Street Seaport, 19 Fulton St. They then allegedly went to the unidentified woman's office at a Lower Manhattan law firm.
Sources told DNAInfo.com that Kelly assaulted the woman while she was passed out drunk. The accuser later called Kelly, reportedly asking, What did you do to me?
Kelly's accuser became pregnant after the incident and then had an abortion, according to DNAInfo.com.
Police interviewed the woman late Tuesday night, but the reason she did not call police earlier still remains unclear. However, police turned the case over to the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr., because of possible ethical conflicts investigating the top cop's son.
Vance's office said a statement on the case has not been released as of yet. One of Vance's press officers noted via e-mail that the office is declining to comment. The NYPD's public affairs office also said they have not released a statement.
Kelly, who has not been charged with any crime, has turned over all text messages between himself and the unidentified woman in an effort to prove they had a consensual encounter, his lawyer said. Kelly has also denied the accusations against him.
Mr. Kelly is aware that the New York County District Attorney's Office is conducting an investigation, Kelly's lawyer Andrew Lankler, noted in a statement to The New York Post. Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind, and is cooperating fully with the district attorney's investigation. We know the district attorney's investigation will prove Mr. Kelly's innocence.
As a result of the incident, Kelly has requested some time off from Fox 5, said the general manager of the station Lew Leone, in a statement reported by the Daily News. He did not mention how long Kelly will be out. Reporter Steve Lacy will substitute for Kelly.
A friend told ABC News that the woman has been an emotional cripple since the Oct. 8 incident. Moreover, it was reported that the woman's boyfriend had picked her up from the office where she appeared to be visibly distraught. When the woman's boyfriend heard of the attack, he became so enraged that he allegedly confronted Police Commissioner Kelly at a public event, telling him about the incident.
According to the woman's story, the commissioner allegedly told the man to write a letter.
Commissioner Kelly is in his own hot water. He has been receiving backlash on the controversial video he appeared in called The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America. The video was used for NYPD counter-terrorism training.
Kelly was interviewed for the controversial film that many critics have called inflammatory to Muslims.
While it never became part of the department's curriculum, and was not authorized for any training, regrettably it was shown in a room where officers who were filling out paperwork or on break from actual training had an opportunity to view it over an extended period in 2010, Kelly said in a written statement, according to the Washington Post. I offer my apologies to members of the Muslim community, in particular, who would find the film inflammatory and its airing on department property, though unauthorized, to be inappropriate.
