Famed singer and music producer Cee Lo Green is the subject of a police investigation for Sexual Battery. The accuser claims she went to dinner with Cee Lo and he slipped her Ecstasy. She claims he then had sex with her while she was unconscious and could not consent. Green vehemently denies the allegations. As a part of the investigation, police had the victim place a "pretext" call and recorded the victim speaking with Cee Lo and attempting to get him to admit the offense.
Sexual Assault (also called sexual battery) charges are some of the most serious allegations that can be levied against a person. A conviction for a Sexual Assault can lead to a sentence of
life in prison. If and when the person is paroled, he or she is subject to lifetime supervision, having one's picture placed on a public website as a "sex-offender," and severe restrictions on where the person can live and work. Even other, lesser sex-related offenses carry life-changing penalties.
Most Sex Crimes involve very little physical evidence. Thus, a conviction rests on the credibility of the accuser. This is why police use extreme tactics in some sex cases, such as pretext calls in an attempt to corroborate the claims of the accuser. It is also why the accused must do everything possible to protect him or herself against false, unsubstantiated allegations.
