R. Kelly Indicted for Alleged Sex Abuse

Singer R. Kelly has been indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Attorney Michael Avenatti previously said his office turned over footage to prosecutors in Cook County, Illinois. CNN said it viewed the video, which clocked in at 42 minutes and 45 seconds. They said it showed a man (allegedly Kelly) engaging in a sexual encounter with a girl. The alleged victim’s age wasn’t clear by looking at her, they said, but she and the man both referred to her private parts as “14 years old.” Kelly allegedly performed various sexual acts on her.

Today’s indictment involves multiple alleged victims.

In 2002, Kelly was indicted in a very similar case. As in 2019, he was charged with abusing a 14-year-old girl in an incident caught on tape. He was acquitted in 2008, however. The girl identified as the victim did not take the stand. Her family members were split over whether it was her. Four testified yes. Three said no.

Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg declined to comment on the new charges. He previously declined to comment when we reached out about a New Yorker report that Cook County prosecutors were seeking an indictment against his client. The lawyer has denied other sexual misconduct allegations levied at Kelly.
