Nelly’s rape accuser will not testify, but the cops are still powering through with the investigation. According to TMZ, police in Auburn are undeterred by the accuser’s noncooperation with the investigation Auburn PD is still gathering evidence and plans to present the case to the prosecutor’s office.
As was previously reported, the alleged victim says she couldn’t take the pressure of taking on a celebrity, and felt betrayed by police, so she would not testify against Nelly. While her noncooperation makes the case more challenging, it’s not impossible to prosecute. Auburn cops are looking to present the case to prosecutors within the next week.
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.” It will be up to prosecutors to decide if Nelly’s charged, so even though a weight was lifted off his shoulders this weekend, he’s not off the hook yet.
