Cee Lo Green cleared of sex assault, faces drug charges

Recording artist Cee Lo Green won’t have to face sexual assault charges in court, but he may still go to prison for a drug charge. According to a statement from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, accusations against the Forget You singer were dropped due to insufficient evidence. Green maintained that the claims were baseless and said he was open to further investigation of the incident. Green’s attorney Blair Berk issued a statement on October 21 that read: “Mr. Green encouraged a full and complete investigation of  those claims, and he was confident once conducted, he would be cleared of having  any wrongful intent and it would be established that any relations were  consensual.” Despite being cleared of those charges, Green may still face up to four years in prison if he is convicted of giving the drug Ecstacy to a 33-year old woman. Green, a judge on the NBC talent show The Voice, has pleaded not guilty to the charge. ~Raj-Kabir Birk

    If a guy thinks he has the right to drug another person to ‘get some?’ I don’t care what he or the evidence says. If she was drugged, it was not consensual, whether they had a relationship or not. I hope he goes to prison for sure. That is disgusting.

    I don’t think ‘consensual’ is the correct word here. I think ‘consentual’ as in ‘age of consent’ is the word. One does not say ‘age of consense’. Nor is it sensual or having anything to do with sensual.

    Just saying

    well if as adults they agreed to do drugs and have sex while high (many people do due to hieghten sens eof excitement) and he supplied it, then they had sex, he is def guilty of supplying drugs to another but not to sexual assault if she did not give any indication that she no longer wanted sex in between her initial agreement and the act. If she never agreed to have sex while on drugs and he used her being high to get sex while she was in no condition to say no (or yes) then that would be sexual assault and he should go to jail for it. we do not know the facts so cant pass judgment. That guy however looks like a perv and a lecherous old man. He is always trying to come unto female contestants, he is a talented but disgusting toad.

    @Kimmerwimmer: Consentual is not a correct spelling of the word. Some people would like it to be, but it’s just a mistake. The correct word in all dictionaries of note (not including the ones to include recent variations made up by people on the net) spell the word as consensual.
