Charlamagne Tha God will not re-face charges of sexual assault because officials said they must honor the plea agreement they struck with the radio personality years ago.
According to Solicitor Scarlett Wilson in Berkely County, South Carolina, “the State allowed Mr. McKelvey to plead guilty to Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor and agreed to dismiss the remaining charge.”
She says the plea was negotiated because of the “victim’s absence and lack of evidence available at the time.” She admits the technology has evolved since 2001, but says the State is required by law to honor the agreement they made with Charlamagne and the case cannot be “resurrected.”
As we reported, Jessica Reid has been trying to reopen the case and believes she was raped by the DJ.
However, in the eyes of the court, Charlamagne is “innocent of the dismissed allegation.”
