High-profile NYC lawyer may have led double life as serial sex crime fiend: cops
Police say they've arrested Ra'Shaun Kelley for a 2014 sexual assault.DCPI
The Brooklyn lawyer busted for three Manhattan cold-case sex crimes could be linked to at least two others, cops said Saturday.
Police believe Ra’Shaun Kelley may have been involved in a Dec. 28, 2014 sexual assault of a 22-year-old woman in the stairwell of an East 6th Street apartment building.
Authorities also suspect he may have grabbed a woman’s buttocks on Dec. 9, 2014 as she walked into her East Village building.
Kelley, 35, a New York Law School-trained business lawyer who lives in East Flatbush, was arrested Friday and hit with several charges of burglary, sex abuse and attempted rape in connection to the three other incidents.
In the first attack, he allegedly followed a 19-year-old woman into the elevator of her apartment building on Roosevelt Drive in the East Village on Dec. 16, 2014, forcibly kissed her and grabbed her rear end, cops said.
He struck again early the next morning, allegedly grabbing a woman in her Harlem apartment building and covering her mouth with his hand while grabbing her back, cops said.
And about a month later on Jan. 14, 2015, he allegedly followed a 31-year-old woman into her apartment in the Lower East Side, pulled her pants down and grabbed her waist, authorities said.
He was busted for the crimes Friday at around 11 p.m. after an investigation by the NYPD’s special victims unit.

My view: This is not normal at all. A High-profile NYC lawyer alleged sexual attack on women, it's baffling, maybe he has two personalities, one for the day job and reportedly the depraved one for night time.
