Cee Lo To Be Cleared Of Sexual Assault Charges
Cee Lo may also get charged with the felony of furnishing ecstasy.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney is slated to clear Cee Lo of sexual assault charges. Cee Lo was accused by a woman who claimed Cee Lo put a substance in her beverage without her knowing before having sexual relations.
The sexual assault case is slated to be rejected this morning, a source reportedly told tmz.com.
The case stems from an evening out between Cee Lo and the accuser. She has claimed the two shared dinner before Cee Lo put ecstasy in her drink without her knowing. She says the two later had sexual relations.
In their investigation of the case, authorities reportedly found that Cee Lo and the accuser had been dating for months prior to the alleged assault and that the two had been intimate in the past.
The case is set to be rejected due to insufficient evidence, as per tmz.com.
Cee Lo reportedly denied these allegations when they were presented to him. He also reportedly encouraged the District Attorney and the Los Angeles Police Department to investigate the matter.
Law enforcement officials are reportedly set to charge Cee Lo with one count of the felony of furnishing ecstasy. His accuser said she had a tape recording of Cee Lo discussing ecstasy. The tape has been used to charge Cee Lo as it is being seen as a confession to drug use, as per tmz.com. It is possible he will be arraigned today (October 21). TMZ notes most first-time offenders in a case like this usually get probation.
