R. KELLY IN NEW AND MORE SERIOUS CHARGES IN SEXUAL ABUSE CASE
There are two things Illuminati will not forget to do. They will actually make you popular, but will not relent in dragging your popularity to the mod. Remember Michael Jackson, 2 Pack, BIG, … Now is R. Kelley’s turn to drink from the heroes’ cup.
An Illinois grand jury has indicted entertainer R. Kelly on 11 new charges in his sexual assault and sexual abuse case, including four new felonies with maximum penalties of 30 years in prison, according to court documents released Thursday.
His attorney said Kelly has been recharged in his existing case as it pertains to one alleged victim.
The charges range from aggravated criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual assault to aggravated criminal sexual abuse, the document says.
A person convicted of aggravated criminal sexual assault can be sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison, according to Illinois law.
Kelly, 52, has vehemently denied any allegations of sexual misconduct.
A crisis manager for Kelly, Darrell Johnson, said, "He still maintains his innocence and denies all accusations brought against him by (the alleged victim) in any state moving forward. He looks forward to a swift and speedy trial."
In February, Kelly was charged with 10 count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse -- a Class 2 felony -- involving four alleged victims. The charges involved alleged criminal conduct from 1998 to 2010.
His attorney said the new indictment "changes nothing."
"These are the same conduct, just charged differently, same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts. We expect the same results," defense attorney Steve Greenberg tweeted.
Kelly is scheduled to appear in court on June 6, said Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff's Office.
The singer was released on bail in March in a case in which authorities have said he failed to pay his ex-wife child support of $161,000.
