R. Kelly turned himself into Chicago police last night. The singer/songwriter looked somber as he left his vehicle and headed into the police station. He faces 3-7 years for each charge. he will sit in jail until he faces a judge, most likely later today.
Kelly is facing 10 counts of sexual assault after new video footage was released of him having sexual relationship with underage girls. Michael Avenatti is the lawyer representing some of these woman and he spoke with reporters yesterday (starts at the 20:19 mark) about the case. He said, “After 25 years of serial sexual abuse and assault of underage girls, the day of reckoning for R Kelly has arrived.”
