Dru Hill Video Plays Role In Conviction

A 59-year-old Queens, N.Y., man was convicted Wednesday of the statutory rape and

sexual abuse of his 16-year-old daughter, who came forward after seeing a video for

R&B group Dru Hill, according to Queens prosecutor Laurie Israel. The "Never

Make a Promise" video depicts a young girl who is rescued from parental abuse by her

boyfriend. The video "helped give me the courage to tell somebody," the girl, who lives in

Brooklyn, was quoted as saying in the New York Daily News. Her father faces up

to 11 years in prison.
