Nelly accuser wants rape case dropped

A woman whose rape accusations against hip-hop star Nelly, 42, led to his arrest on Oct 7 wants the case to be dropped, saying she felt unsafe amid the scrutiny.

A lawyer for the woman said: "We do not live in a society where a 21-year-old college student can feel safe enough to pursue criminal charges against a celebrity for an alleged rape."
