Woman Who Accused Greg Kelly of Rape Speaks Out

greg kellyThe woman who accused WNYW morning anchor Greg Kelly of rape two years ago has spoken out for the first time about the case, giving a series of interviews to BuzzFeed’s Jessica Testa.

The woman, Maria Di Toro, accused Kelly of raping her in October 2011; Kelly was cleared of all charges after an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office concluded “the established facts do not constitute a crime under New York criminal law.”

Di Toro tells BuzzFeed why she is telling her side of the story now:

“I was really scared into submission,” she said. “I felt that if I had said anything to the press — because I had already seen my own words in a police report twisted — I thought for sure if I gave them any interview on the phone, it was gonna happen the same way.”

“I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I realize that I didn’t do all that I could have done to stand up for myself,” said Di Toro, now 31, a petite brunette from a big Long Island family. “I was always like a puny little thing, but I always stood up for myself … And I didn’t this time. And it’s eaten away at my core every day.”

When contacted by BuzzFeed to respond to Di Toro’s account of the incident, Kelly’s lawyer said: “Nearly two and a half years ago the allegations against Mr. Kelly were very thoroughly investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office properly exonerated Mr. Kelly.”
