NY Police Boss' Son, Greg Kelly, Won't Face Charges Over Rape Claim

Jemal Countess/Getty Images(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.

Accuser to Investigators: TV's Greg Kelly Raped Me, Left Me Pregnant

Jemal Countess/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The woman who accused New York TV morning show anchor Greg Kelly of raping her told investigators the assault left her pregnant, sources told ABC News.

The latest developments in the unfolding tale of the encounter in lower Manhattan come as investigators are attempting to sort through the allegations and establish what occurred.

According to sources familiar with the investigation, the accuser, who is about 30 and who works at a law firm as a paralegal, told law enforcement officials that she texted Kelly after the incident, and in one message asked why he had not called.  Investigators are attempting to determine whether the contents of the communications between Kelly and the accuser appear to incriminate or to exonerate him.

The accuser told investigators that she met Kelly, who is single, in lower Manhattan and that he later raped her after she invited him back to the law offices in which she works.

Kelly is the son of New York City's nationally and internationally renowned Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly.  The police department has recused itself from investigating the allegation to avoid any conflict of interest. The probe is being handled by the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

Sources close to the investigation told ABC News Thursday evening that the accuser told investigators she had become pregnant as a result of the encounter with Kelly and had terminated the pregnancy.  Investigators are attempting to establish whether that was accurate.

The alleged assault, which she says occurred nearly three months ago, was reported to police this week.  Multiple sources and the lawyer for Kelly have confirmed the investigation to ABC News.

"Mr. Kelly is aware that the New York county district attorney's office is conducting an investigation," said his attorney, Andrew Lankler.  "Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing and is cooperating fully with the district attorney's investigation.  We know that the district attorney's investigation will prove Mr. Kelly's innocence."

Kelly, 43, is the co-host of the weekday morning news show Good Day New York.  He was previously a White House correspondent for Fox News and the co-host of Fox News' Fox and Friends.  Kelly was also a Marine pilot before joining Fox.

Greg Kelly, Son of New York Police Commissioner, Accused of Rape

Jemal Countess/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Manhattan district attorney is investigating allegations that New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly's son, Greg Kelly, a Fox TV personality, raped a woman last year, multiple sources close to the investigation told ABC News and the lawyer for Kelly confirmed.

"Mr. Kelly is aware that the New York county district attorney's office is conducting an investigation," said his attorney, Andrew Lankler. "Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing and is cooperating fully with the District Attorney's investigation. We know that the District attorney's investigation will prove Mr. Kelly's innocence."

Sources told ABC News that Kelly allegedly raped the young woman in Lower Manhattan last October. Police officials would not comment on the allegations, and Deputy Police Commissioner for Public Information Paul Browne said that to avoid any suggestion of conflict of interest, his office was making no calls to detectives or District Attorney Cyrus Vance to establish any details of an investigation.

Sources confirmed that the woman was first interviewed by detectives on Wednesday. The case was then passed on to the District Attorney because of the risk of conflict in investigating a rape allegation against the police commissioner's son.

According to a close friend of the woman, the incident occurred at or after a party. The alleged victim's boyfriend says, she has been "an emotional cripple" since the alleged assault occurred.

"The boyfriend was outraged and out of his mind when he realized what had happened," a friend told ABC. "He went and picked her up from the office where she was distraught, and he said later that the rape had taken place there."

According to Browne, the boyfriend told Commissioner Kelly that his son "ruined my girlfriend's life," but did not provide details. The alleged victim's friend claims the boyfriend shouted to Kelly, "You better keep an eye on your son."

Greg Kelly, 43, is the co-host of New York weekday morning news show Good Day New York. He was previously a White House correspondent for Fox News and the co-host of Fox News' Fox and Friends. Kelly was also a Marine pilot before joining Fox.
