R. Kelly Turn Himself Into Police

Published on February 23, 2019 by

A grand jury was convened in Cook County, Illinois, earlier this month in connection with new allegations against Kelly. 

That came on the heels of attorney Michael Avenatti announcing he had handed over to the State’s Attorney’s Office a videotape that he said showed Kelly having sex with an underage girl.
This tape leaves no question as to whether R. Kelly is guilty of multiple sexual, illegal acts against a 14-year-old girl,” he told reporters Friday. He said Foxx’s investigation was “very thorough … dedicated and methodical.

Kelly is facing up to 70 years in prison for the charges. Nine of the charges were for sexual abuse involving girls that were between ages 13 and 16. A no-bail warrant was issued for R. Kelly.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx spoke on the charges in a press conference revealing the charges included “transmission of semen… upon any part of the body of the victim for the purpose of sexual gratification, during the course of an underlying felony of attempted criminal sexual assault.”

While the lawyer for R. Kelly believes that some of the charges would be associated with his past case, opposing attorney Michael Avenatti stated these new charges will be not evadable by the legendary singer.

“This conclusive video evidence is not the same evidence previously seen and used in connection with the prior criminal matter in which Mr. Kelly was charged nor does it depict the same instances of sexual assault. Further, the time frame of the sexual assaults depicted in the video is within the Illinois statute of limitations,” the statement reads.

R. Kelly left the storied West Side Chicago studio at 7:45 p.m., much earlier than the suggested 11 p.m., flanked by his attorneys and entourage, entered a sprinter and traveled to the South booking precinct of Chicago. His ride to turn himself in was followed by news crews who captured the moment he was placed in handcuffs and carried away, spending the night in jail.

R. Kelly will have his day in court on Friday, March 8, 2019, which happens to be International Women’s Day.
