R. Kelly turned himself in, judge set bond set at $1m

    Hip-hop artist and producer Robert Kelly has turned himself in after being charged Friday with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Cook County, Illinois. In the bail hearing, the judge set bond at one million dollars. The Associated Press details the women’s accusations against Kelly, which are obviously graphic in nature.

    Kelly’s attorney said that he believes all four women who accuse Kelly are lying. If Kelly is convicted, he will face three to seven years in prison for each count aggravated sexual assault.

    Homeland Security is also investigating Kelly, but there are no details yet about that investigation.

    The recent Lifetime’s documentary called “Surviving R. Kelly” initially led Chicago authorities to open an investigation into Kelly. In that documentary, several women reported that Kelly sexually assaulted them when they were underage.

    Michael Avenatti, the attorney who represented Stormy Daniels in her suit against Donald Trump, submitted video evidence of R. Kelly engaging in sexual activities with underage girls. These charges against R. Kelly are the result of this video, in which Kelly is seen having sex with a girl who was fourteen years old at the time. Three of the four women involved in these charges were between 13 and 16 when Kelly forced them to engage in sexual activities.
