R. Kelly Arrested on Federal Sex Crimes in Chicago

July 12, 2019

R. Kelly was reportedly arrested in Chicago on Thursday, this time on federal sex crime charges. NBC News reports that earlier that day, a 13-count indictment was handed down on charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. Details about the indictment are expected to be revealed on Friday. The 52-year-old R&B artist--who was reportedly arrested by NYPD and Department of Homeland Security agents while walking his dog in the Windy City--is expected to be extradited to New York by authorities. R. Kelly's latest arrest comes five months after he was most recently released on bail for sexual abuse charges brought by Illinois prosecutors.
