Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 20, 2018

State Sen. Nicholas Kettle was charged Monday with extorting sex from a teenage State House page in 2011, the same year he became the youngest senator in Rhode Island history. Appearing in court for the first time since his arrest by State Police Friday afternoon, Kettle was brought before a Superior Court magistrate in handcuffs Monday morning and pleaded not guilty to two counts of extortion. He was released on $50,000 personal recognizance and, leaving Providence Superior Court with his attorney, declined to speak with reporters. A grand jury indictment unsealed Monday accuses Kettle, a 27-year-old Coventry Republican, of twice coercing a Senate student page to have sex with him in 2011, Kettle's first year in the General Assembly. The indictment accused Kettle of threatening to injure the page or harm his reputation if he did not comply.

That wasn't all he did. He's also being charged with voyeurism:

Regarding the voyeurism charge, court documents allege that Kettle was exchanging naked pictures of his former girlfriend with a New Hampshire friend. His former girlfriend told investigators she thought the two had known each other for a long time and had initially met in the Boy Scouts. (Kettle is an Eagle Scout.)

The documents allege Kettle's friend also exchanged with Kettle pictures of his wife. The men talked about swapping partners and videotaping sex acts. Kettle suggested his friend should have sex with him and his girlfriend, the documents allege. The documents also allege that Kettle and his friend exchanged pictures of their genitalia.

Kettle is expected to resign.

Gee, ya' think!
