Police Continue Investigation Into Nelly’s Rape Case
Nelly is still in the legal woods.
Recall that it was alleged that Nelly and members of his entourage were accused of sexually assaulting one of his fans.
The said fans have now refused to testify but that’s done nothing to stop Washington law enforcement from going forward with the case by presenting it to the prosecutor’s office…in a few days.
Nelly’s attorney, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ he’s confident the case will be closed based on the evidence. He adds, “I would expect the police to do their due diligence.”
Why his accuser is no longer willing to testify?
Karen Koehler, says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to “put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him.”
Koehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can’t stand up to a celebrity. “Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break.”
The accuser had no idea that the police would spill details on her case to the media because she was assured no one would learn of what she says happened until after the case closed.
Nelly says she is lying.
