R. Kelly arrested in Chicago on federal sex trafficking charges

R Kelly arrested on federal sex trafficking charges

Then on 30 May, 11 more sex-related counts were added to the charges against the singer.

The news conference Friday morning was interrupted seconds after beginning, when the family of Joycelyn Savage, a woman who lived with Kelly in Chicago, confronted Kelly publicist Darrell Johnson and pleaded to speak with their daughter.

He posted the $100,000 bail and left Chicago's Cook County Jail less than three days after he was arrested.

Both the U.S. Attorney for Northern District of IL and the Southern District of NY are reportedly involved in the case.

These incidents are alleged to have taken place in locations including Chicago, Connecticut, California and in Brooklyn, where prosecutors filed the sealed charges June 20.

At a news conference in May, Mueller said the team chose the words in the report carefully and that the work speaks for itself. Nadler wouldn't comment on the format after being repeatedly asked about it by Republicans.

The 52-year-old was arrested by Homeland Security Investigation agents and NYPD Public Safety Task Force, officials told News 4, and it is expected he will be brought to NY.

Of course, Kelly had previously been facing a series of sexual abuse charges in his hometown of Chicago, but those were local (state) charges levied by local prosecutors. He has been sued by several women who accuse him of having sex with them when they were minors.

At one point, according to the Chicago indictment, Kelly made one of his alleged victims submit to a polygraph test to determine whether there were any remaining child pornography videos with the singer in them. Prosecutors say the defendants paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to victims and witnesses to make sure they wouldn't cooperate with law enforcement. He was arrested by New York Police Department detectives and investigators from the Department of Homeland Security, NBC News reported. The investigation could also include child pornography.

"He and his lawyers look forward to his day in court, to the truth coming out and to his vindication from what has been an unprecedented assault by others for their own personal gain", attorney Steve Greenberg said Friday in a statement.

It was also his interview with Gayle King in March, which had the world talking. Kelly, 52, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has pleaded not guilty.
