Charlamagne Moves to Dismiss Sexual Assault Lawsuit

April 24, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Charlamagne is seeking to dismiss a lawsuit related to a sexual assault case from 2001, citing insufficient evidence. According to Hip Hop DX, the radio host filed new legal documents claiming that the DNA found in the rape kit from the incident does not match his own, providing further support for his continued insistence on his innocence.

This report was brought to light by Radar Online on April 20.

“[Alleged victim Jessica Reid] has persisted in broadly disseminating her unsubstantiated claims, ignoring that the South Carolina Solicitor in 2018 declined her request to re-open the case due to a lack of evidence while confirming that no basis existed to bring sexual assault charges against Charlamagne,” the filing reads. “Witnesses had attested to the fact that Charlamagne had already left the party when the alleged assault occurred.

In addition, his attorney Michael Weinstein released a statement. “We are confident that Ms. Reid’s meritless civil lawsuit in which she represents herself will be promptly dismissed,” he said.

“At that time, my client voluntarily submitted his DNA, and it was confirmed his DNA was not found in her rape kit.

Reid filed a federal lawsuit against Charlamagne a few months ago in 2022, accusing him of “willfully, unlawfully, and feloniously engage in penile/vaginal intercourse with a fifteen-year-old female child” while he was 22 years old at the time.

In 2001, Charlamagne pleaded guilty to a lower charge of “contributing to the delinquency of a minor” after providing her with alcohol and was charged with three years of probation.
