Greg Kelly’s Accuser Claims She Got Pregnant And Had An Abortion Following Sexual Assault

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police Commissioner Ray Kelly is staying mum.

Ray Kelly appeared in front of reporters for the first time since his son was accused of sexual assault. Kelly was asked repeatedly about the accusation and the case, and referred any questions to the Manhattan district attorney’s office.

No charges have been filed against Greg Kelly, but the scandal is keeping the WNYW-TV anchor off the air.

Greg Kelly issued a statement saying he “strenuously denies any wrongdoing” but has stepped back from his duties as co-host of “Good Day New York” on Fox 5 while the investigation is underway.

Investigators are beginning to dig back into October, looking for any evidence that could corroborate the woman’s claim that she was sexually assaulted by Kelly.

CBS 2 has learned Kelly’s accuser has claimed their sexual encounter resulted in her getting pregnant. She has also claimed that she subsequently had an abortion.

The District Attorney’s team is searching for witnesses who may have seen the two drinking near the South Street Seaport as well as any surveillance video of Kelly and the woman near a bar, walking to her office or inside her building.

According to reports, the woman says she met Kelly on the street and the two had drinks by the South Street Seaport before going to her law office building where she says Kelly forced himself on her.

But, she admits, she was very intoxicated.

Kelly has provided investigators text messages the two exchanged, CBS 2 has learned.

1010 WINS and WCBS 880 reported that sources told the New York Post the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has serious doubts about the woman’s claims that she was raped by Kelly and is leaning toward not filing criminal charges.

Legal experts say it may come down to whether investigators believe Kelly’s accuser was too drunk to say no.

“These are the worst cases because the fact of the matter is that if he knowingly forced himself on somebody who is saying no even though she started down that road, it’s still rape,” said criminal lawyer Gerald Lefcourt.

Not since the Manhattan D.A. dropped the rape charge against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has Cyrus Vance Jr. found himself in the middle of such a high profile rape investigation.

Here, detectives who interviewed Greg Kelly’s accuser said she seemed quite professional and credible.

Legal expert Paul Kalin looked at the case.

“There was a lot of public controversy and criticism about the handling of the Strauss-Kahn case. I think DA Vance will have to be very very careful to be sure that there’s no allegation here that he’s been unfair or biased in handling this investigation,” Kalin told WCBS 880 reporter Irene Cornell.

Complicating the investigation is the fact that Greg Kelly is Police Commissioner Ray Kelly’s son.

Sources close to the investigation say the woman and her sister went to the 13th precinct Tuesday night to file a complaint and when detectives realized the potential for a conflict of interest, they immediately turned the case over to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it was the right call.

“In this case, I thought the police department did exactly what they should do,” Bloomberg said. “They right away turned the investigation over to the DA because you don’t want the appearance of a conflict of interest.”

Greg Kelly is cooperating fully with the investigation and denies the claims. He has not been charged.

    Simple question, why is this man not subjected to the same treatment his dad puts his cops through? Arrested, comments prior to the facts coming in and termination after being criminally aquitted? Surely we rememebr the two cops who had “relations” with a drunken women recently and there was video of her being “drunk”. Pencil neck Ray found it fitting to comment on that story, why not this one Ray? I hope this event reaps all the termoil and stress on the Kelly family his miserable butt has delivered to thousands of his underlings families over his long miserable carreer inthe NYPD. Rank and file and his own office cannot stand his guts!

    I do like the manner in which you have presented this particular problem and it does provide me a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, from what precisely I have personally seen, I just simply trust as the reviews stack on that people today stay on issue and in no way embark on a tirade involving some other news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this outstanding piece and though I do not concur with it in totality, I regard the perspective.

  • royallen

    She should crawl back into that rathole she came out of.This has the smell of old fish…………………….hope he is not charged,and she never gets a dime out of him

    You don’t wait three months to report a rape. What did she think he wanted when they were alone? A philosophical chat? Think it was consensual and she had regrets about it.

  • Susana Smith

    sorry, but to zero in on this poor guy, she is so wrong! all this to save an already ruined relationship! because this guy is NOT going to want her with all this publicity. there is something WRONG with this picture. Only GOD can bring the truth to view

  • Deborah Jeffries

    With all the diseases out there, this chick doesn’t make him use a condom? Yuck!

  • teketoria

    No other way to advertise the son of a successful cop boss?
    He ‘ll be the next after “daddy”?

  • xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Clearly Greg could have not have raped this woman but if it was a man I would believe the story.He has always stuck me as a man interested in other mens rectums like Mayor Bloomberg..

  • Gullible is really spelled gully bley

    So this woman meets him on the street, gets drunk with him, invites him to her office, is “raped”, becomes pregnant, gets an abortion and has to explain all of this to her boyfriend of how many years? Must have been difficult to say all of that with a straight face.

  • NYC

    I love Greg Kelly! I watch him in the mornings and love his personality! I don’t believe he would do such a thing! Poor guy, sue her azz!

  • Leia

    I am not going to watch “Good Day New York” ever again…the whole story just nauseates me….whatever the truth is!

    • F*** The Police

      You make me sick.

    • Puke

      Agreed. You are nauseating.

    • Leia's Mom

      Leia what a small brain you have to hate a guy being falsely accused.She is ruining his career to try to save her relationship with her bf.Your comment nauseates me too

  • pete

    in any other case, the papers and Tv would ignore a stupid and seemingly made-up story like this. As Greg is a nice guy AND the son of the police com. this changes the situation dramatically. This is NEWS, right or wrong, as the papers and TV have NO morals at all. Now, when proven innocent, will Greg get the same write-up? Who will hire him and give him the same professional chances which he had before this incidence? Not the papers or agencies which now feast on this very sad story!

  • Vik

    One word for this woman and it sounds like sewer with an “h”. Then again, same difference. ‘Nuf said.

  • PEM

    I really hope it’s not true! It will really break my heart. Greg can get any woman he wants, does he really need to rape someone? I personally don’t think so.

  • S. Manuel

    I watch Greg each and every mornig on the news, I really don’t think he would do something like this,cause he seems to carry himself in a very proffesional manner. I really hope he is innocent of all these charges.

    • S. Manuel

      Also she got caught out thete cheating on her man, what was she doing going out on a so-called date if she was involved with her boyfriend? Sounds suspect to me and a whole lot of other people!!!!

      • Caught in the act

        Opps! She got caught by her boyfriend cheating on him, so she made up the story.
        The fact that she got an abortion and that the boyfriend does not have the ability to get her pregnant does not mean it was Kelly. It could have been anybody else. I guess she did not keep DNA evidence… that would be sick.

  • JR. Anderson

    I’m very much concerned about these alilagations, for one his status as a anchor for a very known TV news station, also being the Top Cops (Commioner’s son)relative. also she may have other intentions, who do you beleive?

  • marc

    It seems to me that any woman can claim rape after having sex, even if she has no marks or bruises on her. All she has to do is say that it happened. The guy has no defense. What if you are past that moment of no return and the woman yells to get off her? It seems to me that men and women need to sign a contract before having sex that is notarized. Perhaps there should also be witnesses to the act itself. Hey, better safe than sorry. As a matter of fact, I volunteer to watch.

    • NYC


  • Christine

    Something sounds so wrong with this story, why did she wait over 3 months to report this? why was she texting him after the incident? why leave with him and take him back to your office when you dont know him? if she had a boyfriend at the time how does she know the baby was kelly’s? this story sounds like total BS and she sounds like an oppurtunist, also sounds like the boyfriend found out and she lied to cover it up so he wouldnt leave her, this is insane

  • Karen

    This woman is totally setting him up because of who he is.

    • John

      I agree. She is a gold digger looking for the golden parachute for she own infidelity. She should be charged with a crime of false report if they can prove she is lying.

  • Whitney

    He is an admitted bully, actually said this on air, and comes off inappropriate with several female guests. And who knows if its true, but I can see the woman’s hesitation given who he is. I have a hard time believing you’d accuse the son of the police commish unless it were true knowing what a difficult fight you’d have ahead of you. And you can’t believe everything in the Post, they’re owned by the same company as fox, so of course they’re gonna make it seem like he’s a great guy. But honestly how could an accused rapist host a morning show? I like the new guy they have filling in for him much better anyway, he doesn’t seem mad like Greg was and he’s better looking!

    • Eric

      So true about The NY Post! One of my boys works at ch. 5 with Greg and complains about him all the time, says he’s an a&%hat that gets away with everything and makes everyone miserable, they love when he takes vacation! He told me that when the newsroom heard what they wrote in the Post about everyone there being sad, they all started laughing, wondering who the “sources” were. He said it’s more like the “ding dong the witch is dead” scene in Wizard of Oz.

  • J. S. Sanchez

    This woman should have to release her name. What does she need to be protected from? She is accusing a very public figure of a horrific act and is still keeping in contact with him? This story is foul & makes the rest of woman look bad

  • jagdish

    Way too easy to throw around the word “rape” because : 1.) gets accuser attention she is looking for; 2.) gets the accused in trouble; 3.) chance of settling for big $$; 4.) no harsh consequeces for false accusations. Things need to change.

  • Toni Loggie

    oh please Roseanna Scotto is no bargain..Yes Greg is not one of my favorites on air..But I would not consider Roseanna Scotto as a New York insitution..

  • diver

    She had an abortion and suspected rape. So was a DNA test done on the fetus? If not why not and if so a simple DNA test will at least prove who she had sex with. Then we can decide about if it was rape or not.

    We need more facts.

    • JOE

      Kelly doesn’t deny having consensual sex with her, so whether or not the dna matches is irrelevant

  • Peter

    She brought him back to look at some law books !!!!

  • Morisot

    How long does any business or concern keep survelance videos–a week? a month? before they are over-written.

    (If you feel you have a case, act quickly to get your proof.)

  • Love NYC

    MORE DETAILS PLEASE. October has 31 days. The South Street Seaport Seaport and the area around it has several restaurants and bars. It states “near” and “by” the South Street Seaport. And, there is always a multitude of couples drinking, intoxicated, and leaving together. Going to take more info. to jog witnesses’ minds.

  • MaxineRules

    Bitch, please! You got ‘very intoxicated’ on two drinks? What the hell were you drinking, 32 oz glasses of straight tequila?? You saw someone ‘famous’, wanted to do him, got knocked up because you were too stupid to take precautions, and got caught by your boyfriend who knew it wasn’t his. Now you’ve decided “Hey, wait, he’s got money, I can cash in on this and be on easy street the rest of my pathetic, sad little life! Woohoo, jackpot!!” If you’d really been raped by him you’d have spoken up right away – you waited since October? Did you go to Duke University, by any chance? You rank right up there with the lying stripper who cried rape and ruined a whole lot of lives; maybe you should remember what happened to her!!

    • Wow oh wow

      That stripper didn’t go to Duke. Nothing happened to her…a few years ago she was involved in a stabbing and nothing happened to her for that and then just last year, she was involved in stabbing her boyfriend, who later died…nothing of that yet either.

    • Christine

      Maxine I agree with you 100% this is a total BS case

    • Again?

      The stripper didn’t go to Duke. The boys whose lives she ruined did.

  • Vik

    Give me a friggin break. She WAS drunk and invited a man back to her office to what? Play Solitaire on her office computer?! She got busted by her boyfriend and cried rape to get off the hook. Oh and please — the NY Post states that she said that the aborted baby was Kelly’s because she wasn’t having relations with her boyfriend at the time?!! Why is this story even still out there and why isn’t Greg Kelly exonerated and back on the air??!! Total b.s.!!! Greg keep your head up. Fox5 — stand beside your anchor!!!!!!


    i’m sorry this guy is in hot water now and i hope the truth comes out one way or the other but i gotta say i’m glad he’s off the air. if you’ve ever seen him on tv, he’s not a nice guy. more than once i’ve seen him acting rude to rosanna scotto, who is a new york institution on the air here. i’d be much happier to see her working with someone on her skill level who understood what the show was set up to do and not some smart ass always trying to one up everyone, like he was doing. like i said, i’m happy and sad.

  • Ronnie

    Wake up Ronnie, this is 4 months later, there is no baby, yet. oops!

  • Ronnie

    Well, let me see, this is January 2012, the boyfriend, who was told he was the father and knew at the time he couldn’t be because, it’s just coming out that he had a vasectemy and let me get this straight, the girlfriend didn’t know this? Sounds like a gilded frame to me, now that she finallly (after the DNA test proved the boyfriend is not the father) realizing who she had sex with during that drunken night out. Seems to me somebody has got to pay and it ain’t the boyfriend….wait a minute Now I remember that’s the guy, that channel 5 guy that I was out with, sure looks like him to me.
