***A note from Care2 - It was brought to our attention that some of the information in this petition was incorrect. Specifically, Charlamagne Tha God did not plead guilty to sex with a minor, but, rather, to the charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was, also, not accused of "drugging and raping" by the plaintiff, nor do "court documents show he did have sexual contact with the victim." We have made updates to the petition copy below to reflect the facts of the case.***
We demand that iHeart Media fire Charlamagne Tha God from The Breakfast Club.
In 2001, 15-year-old Jessica Reid claimed she was sexually assualted at a party hosted by Charlamagne Tha God. He was arrested a month later for criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree, specifically, "willfully, unlawfully and feloniously engage in penile/vaginal intercourse with a fifteen year old female child." He pled guilty to the much lesser charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Now that Jessica is older, she wants her case re-opened.
Videos have surfaced where Charlamagne denied involvement. He can still be prosecuted, and he should be. We want to send a powerful message to all of these monsters who like to prey on innocent children that it's not going to happen on our watch! No matter how much money or influence you have, we will not allow you to hurt our children.
So please help us take a stand and get #Justice4jessicaReid She needs closure. We want iHeart Media to stop supporting Charlamagne Tha God's behavior and fire him from The Breakfast Club. Anyone who accepts a guilty plea of any kind of deviance with children shouldn't profit, they should be punished! #justice4closure
