NY prosecutor will not charge Greg Kelly with sexual assault

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The New York District Attorney's Office will not bring sexual assault charges against Greg Kelly, ending a two-week probe of the local television host who is also the son of New York City Police Commission Raymond Kelly, the prosecutor's office said Tuesday.

"We have determined that the facts established during our investigation do not fit the definitions of sexual assault crimes under New York criminal law," a letter from the head of the DA's sex crimes unit, Martha Bashford, to Greg Kelly's attorney said. "Therefore, no criminal charges are appropriate."

Reuters obtained a copy of the letter.
