Lenard Larry McKelvey commonly known as Charlamagne Tha God is a radio and Tv personality who is known worldwide. He is popular as the co-host for Breakfast Club which is an internationally recognized radio show. He is also popular for his involvement in music related shows and specials and public appearances.
As he was growing up in South Carolina, McKelvey was arrested for some small offenses and also bore witness to some crimes. He later decided to enroll for night school and soon started his radio hosting career alongside Wendy Williams where Charlamagne Tha God quickly gained a mass following.
At the age of 22 in 2009, Charlmagne was detained following the issuance of a warrant of arrest for him. The charge was criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree. The charges came after a 15 year old girl accused him of rape. Charlmagne Tha God cooperated with authorities and he pleaded guilty with a lesser charge. He was sentenced to three years’ probation and the case was dismissed in 2002.
Jessica Reid, Charlamagne’s accuser decided to bring up the case again almost a decade later. This came at a time when Charlmagne;s career was at its peak. Her reasons for bringing up the case again include the fact that she has not been able to get closure. Charlmagne was later cleared of the charges since his DNA was not present in the rape kit that was used to sentence him in 2001.
After Charlamagne’s case, it has come to the limelight that at least 2 to 10% of reported rape cases are fake. False rape claims are a major source of negative cultural effects. Studies have even been carried out to understand the psychology behind those who lie about being raped. It has been established that people who lie about rape have the habit about lying about other things in their life as well. Go To This Page to learn more.
