R. Kelly Charged with 10 Counts of Criminal Sexual Abuse

Evening Standard

Karma seems to finally be coming around to bite R. Kelly in the ass.

After months, or maybe even years, of trying to convict the R&B soul singer of sexual misconduct, a Grand Jury is looking to do so. The news comes after a mysterious VHS tape was turned in for evidence. On the tape, Kelly and a female are engaged in lewd sexual acts. Sources, connected to the case, report that the girl seems to be a minor between the ages of 13 to 16 years old. The source also concludes that both, Kelly and the alleged minor, refer to her genitals as being 14 years old.

As a result, Mr. “Step in the Name of Love” is facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. To make matters more satisfying, to the victims and their families, each charge carries a maximum of 3 to 7 years in prison.

But first, they’re issuing a warrant for his arrest. And according to TMZ, the warrant will not allow for Kelly to post bail. The news was announced Friday morning.

Individuals, close to R. Kelly, say the singer plans to turn himself into authorities Friday evening.
