R.Kelly Arrested on Federal Sex Trafficking and Child Pornography Charges

Few weeks after R.Kelly pleaded not guilty to 11 sex-related charges, including four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, he has now been arrested on Federal sex crime charges in Chicago and is to be brought to NewYork.

If found guilty, he would face a maximum 30-year prison term. 

The 52-year-old RnB singer was arrested on Thursday by New York Police Department detectives and Department of Homeland Security agents, as confirmed by New York’s WNBC-TV.  

In a statement via New York Times, Fitzpatrick said: ‘The indictment includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor, and obstruction of justice.’

Though a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office said R. Kelly faces a 13-count sex crime indictment, it is expected that his case will be announced on Friday July 12th.
