Why Isn’t Maria Di Toro Charged With a Crime for Falsely Crying Rape?

Posted by on Feb 08, 2012 at 7:40 pm

In the event you have no idea who Maria Di Toro is, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many news organizations shield the names of rape accusers, even after it’s shown their allegations are false. It’s one thing to shield accusers when those they charge are held accountable, but this may be one of the flimsiest accusations in recent memory.

So now she can be named.

Manhattan prosecutors will not seek rape charges against Greg Kelly, the TV talk-show host and son of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, stemming from a complaint filed by a 29-year-old woman, authorities said last night.

The case was over nearly as soon as it started — after it surfaced that his aspiring-model accuser, Maria Di Toro, engaged in steamy texting with him after their sexual encounter, suggesting they get together again, sources said.

“Those aren’t the words of a woman raped,’’ one law-enforcement source flatly told The Post.

Another source said the later texts showed that “the lustfulness for each other was mutual’’ and added that it should be “no surprise’’ that the investigation was dropped.

“Between her story, her texts, his story, the small amount of alcohol [involved that night], there was just no evidence,’’ the source said. “The only theory was that she was physically helpless, not forced, but there was no proof that she was in a drunken stupor.’’

The source noted that Di Toro— the sister of an NYPD sergeant — would not be charged with anything because she apparently still perceives that what happened that night, Oct. 8, in the Financial District law office where she works as a paralegal, was an assault.

“There are no plans to prosecute her because [authorities] don’t believe she is lying. She never wavered from her story that she was too drunk to consent,’’ the source explained.

She believes she was raped, so it’s OK? This is a novel defense and could open up all sorts of possible defenses for criminals. Well, gee, your honor, that money I took  was really mine.  See how easy this can be? We imagine Kelly would like this all behind him and probably doesn’t want to prolong this with a lawsuit. But it would serve him right.

    He should let the case go to trial. Loser pays.

    I think she’d drop the case quite quickly.

    Why isn’t she charged with a crime for falsely crying rape? That’s simple. Because it already has the lowest reportage rate of all crimes, and if police charged women who did do this. The rate would drop even further. It’s been tried. It becomes a case of do you put up with the bullshit, or let the incidents completely run out of hand because women fear reporting it and being charged for filing a false report.

    The article itself is pretty shitty on answering all of this because reporters don’t understand the law, or DA/Crown’s reasoning behind it. Rather they play fill in the blanks based on what they can understand.

    Not a perfect solution, or answer to the problem either. The best answer though is for anyone caught in a case like this to file a libelous action against the accuser.

    Mashiki, please supply the background information sources for the statement that rape has the lowest reportage of all crimes. Thanks.

    IBCR You’re welcome.

    Or you can go check your incidence to claim reports as long as your local service/dept offers that service.

    Greg Kelly is not going to pursue criminal charges for the false rape accusation because he doesn’t want his sexual life in public display. He probably is glad the whole ordeal is over and would like to go back to his normal life.

    Oh Please Mashiki. The ideas you have are scary. Men shouldn’t have protection of the law against violence by proxy used by some psycho woman simply because it might hurt other women? By your insane reasoning we should not prosecute all sorts of crimes because the justice system might not be perfect and might get it wrong.

    Men should just “suck it up” and “get over it”?! Wow – dude you’re a bigot. Just replace men with any other group and it’s manifestly obvious.

    Oh, Crystal Mangum, the Duke lacross false accuser … she had done the EXACT same thing a decade previously. No one punished her then either … and she then did it later to the “Duke 3”.

    In between she also stole a man’s car, and when cornered by the police, tried to commit vehicular manslaughter on a cop who tried to arrest her.

    Since that accusation she made at Duke, she committed arson, and was given a wrist slap.

    Oh, and now, she’s facing murder charges for killing her boyfriend.

    Hmmm, it almost seems if you don’t punish bad behavior from psychos and give them a pass due to gender or color, that they go and commit MORE crimes and escalate because some bigot like Mashiki doesn’t want “certain” crimes punished.

    Certain crimes like rape are most often commited by men, but no one is suggesting we let men off the hook so that no man will suffer. But Mashiki seems to think false accusations, often made by women against men, should just be ignored … what-a-bigot.
