Singer CeeLo Green won't be charged with sexual assault, but the "Voice" coach will be prosecuted for allegedly giving ecstasy to a female victim, the Los Angeles district attorney's office said Monday.
Green, 39, "allegedly slipped ecstasy to a 33-year-old female while the two were dining at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant sometime between July 13 and July 14, 2012," according to a statement from the prosecutor. "The two later went back to the woman's hotel."
The district attorney's office cited insufficient evidence for the decision not to file a charge of rape of an intoxicated person.
“His attorney, Blair Burke issued a statement saying Mr. green encouraged a full and complete investigation of those claims and he was confident that he would be cleared of having any wrongful intent and it would be established that any relations were consensual,” reports CNN’s Nischelle Turner.
Still, he faces up to four years in prison if convicted on the drug charge. For now he's free on $30,000 bail.
