Robert S. Kelly is a famous singer/songwriter’s name who has recently been embroiled in legal battles related to sexual assault. Ever since the 1990’s, allegations of sexual misconduct have been a large part of R Kelly’s life.
According to DNA that Chicago prosecutors obtained, R&B singer R. Kelly sexually abused at least four people since the late 1990’s; three of which were under the legal age of consent.
Historically, there have been many allegations made against the singer including a large range of child/sexual abuse. Finally, these charges seem to be catching up to him
Saturday, Judge John Lyke set Mr. Robert S. Kelly’s bail to a total of $1 million dollars; $250,000 for each victim. Kelly is charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse after he made his first appearance in court since turning himself in at 6:00 AM on Friday.
Mr. Kelly continues to be imprisoned Sunday afternoon after he did not turn over the $100,000 payment Lyke requested; that’s 10% of the the bail required for him to be released from custody.
If Mr. Kelly paid the money, his passport would’ve been terminated and all contact with anyone under the age of 18 would and is now strictly prohibited.
As it stands right now, Kelly is most likely consulting his legal team about what may happen when he returns to court today.
