Rape Case Against Nelly Officially Dropped in Washington

December 14, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

King County prosecutors have officially dropped a rape investigation of Nelly after the alleged victim refused to cooperate. TMZ reports that the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office say that they have dropped the case because the victim’s lack of cooperation made it impossible to charge the rapper.

The lawyer for the woman said in October that she wanted the case dropped, saying, “She wishes she had not called 911 because she believes the system is going to fail her.” The lawyer claimed that police told the media that she had met with them and prosecutors despite the fact that she was told no one would know about the metting until after the investigation was complete.

Nelly had been accused of raping the woman on his tour bus, a charge he denied.
