Watch: R. Kelly Arrested, Turned Himself In To Police
Embattled Grammy award-winning singer, R. Kelly has been arrested on criminal sexual abuse charges, after he turned himself in to police in Chicago.
The singer made the move to turn himself in after he was charged with sexual abuse of four girls, at least three of whom were minors.
A video of Kelly turning himself to the police yesterday evening while being accompanied by his lawyer, Steven Greenberg was shared by Crepeau,
Prosecutors in Chicago hit Kelly with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse Friday morning, and nine of the 10 counts involve alleged victims ranging in age from 13 to 16 years old. There are four alleged victims in total, and one of them is the subject of four different counts.
According to the criminal complaint, the allegations include oral and vaginal sex with a girl between the ages of 13 and 17 and the allegations are extremely graphic.
The indictment follows the report that a new videotape of Kelly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl was provided to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Chicago by lawyer Michael Avenatti. Avenatti told CNN that the tape was provided to him by a man he described as a “whistleblower.” The tape, viewed by CNN, reportedly shows Kelly performing multiple sex acts with a girl. Both of them allegedly refer to the girl’s body parts as “14-year-old” in the tape.
It would be recalled that the agitation calling for Kelly’s arrest increased following the release of the Lifetime documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly,” in which alleged victims of Kelly’s spoke about their experiences.
