R-Kelly’s legal battles are very far from ending but it seems like a new chapter has been opened with a new set of 13-count indictments against him and his new arrest.
According to CNN, R-Kelly was arrested in Chicago while walking his dog late last night by federal agents on charges related to child pornography and other federal crimes. Some of the other charges against him include enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.
It is expected that Federal agents in Chicago will open a separate five-count indictment on Friday. R-kelly will be appearing before a federal court in Chicago before he is taken to New York to face charges there.
This sexual assault allegations have been levelled against R-Kelly since 2008 when he was acquitted on State child Pornography laws. R-Kelly who is now 52 is already faced with 21 charges of sexual misconduct involving 4 women, 3 of whom were said to be underaged girls at the time. All of these charges span from 1998 to 2010 and he has already pleaded not guilty to them.
In March of this year, he was arrested and jailed again for not paying child support of $161,000 to his ex-wife. He has on numerous occasions vehemently denied any allegations of sexual misconduct, even saying during an interview with CBS This Morning, “I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me!”
R-Kelly is faced with over 30 years in prison for all the charges he is being faced with if convicted.
