Kelly Arrested in Chicago on Federal Sex Crime Charges

Kelly Arrested in Chicago on Federal Sex Crime Charges

In June, Kelly was back in court facing 11 new felony sex assault charges and various abuse in IL, to which he pled not guilty.

Darrell Johnson, Kelly's representative, said he will hold a press conference at 9:30 a.m.

According to the New York Times, Kelly, 52, was arrested in Chicago on Thursday night over a 13-count indictment from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of IL.

A 13-count indictment by a federal grand jury was filed in Chicago on Thursday. Hours after the interview aired, Kelly was taken to custody following a court appearance for unpaid child support.

R. Kelly made sex tapes with a victim who was 12 or 13 when he met her - and suggested to a 19-year-old woman that she should tell him if she was really around 15, because he'd prefer her younger, new court documents allege. The state attorney's office for Chicago - led by the controversial Kim Foxx, the same woman who let Jussie Smollett off the hook - filed indictments totaling 21 charges after a Lifetime documentary about Kelly's predatory behavior and lack of consequences thereof embarrassed law enforcement.

Kelly's lawyers have argued that she could only have sued up until 2002.

A five-count indictment against Kelly will be unsealed Friday in the Eastern District of NY, a source with that district's United States attorney's office told CNN. Authorities say he confined the victims against their will, forcing them to engage in sex acts and sometimes filming the sexual activity.

R. Kelly's attorney says federal agents arrested the R&B singer on charges out of IL and NY.

Kelly's defence attorney Steve Greenberg confirmed R. Kelly's arrest in a statement to the Chicago Sun-Times but declined further comment. Those charges include child pornography, sexual exploitation of children, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice. He pleaded not guilty and was released from Chicago's Cook County Jail after posting bail.

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing. The series followed the BBC's "R Kelly: Sex, Girls & Videotapes", released in 2018, that alleged the singer was holding women against their will and running a "sex cult".
