Singer R Kelly Charged with Sexual Offences
The R&B singer is facing charges on ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse in the state of Illinois. The multiple Grammy winner has consistently denied years of sexual misconduct allegations involving women and underage girls. In 2008, Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges after a video emerged of him allegedly having sex with a girl of 13, while last week lawyer Michael Avanetti said he gave Chicago prosecutors evidence of Kelly having sex with a girl who also appeared to be underage.
What happens now? Documents list Kelly’s first court date as 8 March.
