Greg Kelly Rape Allegations
What was Greg Kelly Accused of?: In January 2012 Maria Di Toro, a 28-year-old paralegal claimed that Kelly raped her on October 8, 2011 in a downtown office where she worked. She alleged that the two met on the street near her apartment while she was walking her dog. She recognized Kelly and stopped him to say hi and say he was better looking in person than on Tv. Kelly began walking with her and making small talk. He allegedly told her about an upcoming presentation at Baruch College that he was nervous about. He asked for her phone number and gave her a Baruch College T-shirt he was carrying, and they said good-bye.
Later that evening Di Toro allegedly got a text from Kelly asking how the shirt fit and they began talking “casual, G-rated stuff.” As the texting continued they got more “personal and flirtatious.”
The following Friday Kelly allegedly called and asked Di Toro’s favorite sexual position and she told him and that was the beginning of their conversations becoming more “casual, trusting, and consensually explicit.”
The next day on Saturday, Oct.8, Di Toro told Kelly she was going to her office on Wall Street and he suggested they meet up when she was done. At this point they had both acknowledged that they were seeing other people and Di Toro allegedly told Kelly nothing could happen between them. While walking and talking, they decided to get a drink at Jeremy’s Ale House.
According to Di Toro, their conversation gradually became “more explicit, sexual, and filled with admissions of fetishes and sexual experiences.”
She alleged that after the third round, after taking only two sips, she felt suddenly and strongly impaired and they left the bar and returned to her office. She alleges she can’t remember much after that and doesn’t even remember how she got back to her apartment.
On Monday, the two allegedly talked about how drunk they got and when Kelly asked if she had a good time she said she didn’t remember and that’s when he allegedly told her some graphic details, including ejaculating on her chest and trying to put his penis down her throat.
She allegedly asked him if he had ejaculated inside her and he allegedly said no and then she asked if he had spiked her drink as she couldn’t believe she got drunk off only two drinks to which Kelly allegedly said he was uncomfortable with her questions and didn’t like where the conversation was going.
He later called her in a month but they never spoke again. She alleged that she got pregnant but she had since terminated. She said she knew Greg was the father as her boyfriend had a vasectomy. It is not clear whether she told Greg that she was pregnant.
The prosecutors decided not to press charges against Kelly. The Manhattan district attorney’s office concluded that “the facts established during our investigation do not fit the definition of sexual assault crimes.”
