R. KELLY: 11 New Felony Charges
Written by KingCnote on May 31, 2019
A ton of new abuse charges were filed against R. Kelly on Thursday, including 11 felonies.
The singer is facing up to 30 years in prison for each felony if he’s convicted. The Chicago Sun-Times notes that the “charges are more serious than those in the four cases that were filed against the singer in February.” It’s unknown if the new charges are related to a new victim, or if the initials correspond to a previous accuser. The alleged victim was between 13 and 16 years old at the time of the abuse that took place in January of 2010.
Kelly is due back in court on June 6th. He’s free on $1 million bond related to the February charges.
