CHICAGO – Singer R. Kelly, already going through sexual abuse fees introduced by Illinois prosecutors, was arrested in Chicago Thursday on a federal grand jury indictment itemizing 13 counts together with intercourse crimes and obstruction of justice.

U.S. Lawyer’s workplace spokesman Joseph Fitzpatrick mentioned the R&B singer was taken into custody about 7 p.m. native time and was being held by federal authorities.

He was arrested after the federal indictment was handed down earlier Thursday in federal courtroom for the Northern District of Illinois.

“The counts embrace little one porn, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice,” Fitzpatrick mentioned, including that additional particulars could be launched Friday.

The arrest was the second time this yr that Kelly has been taken into custody in Chicago on intercourse fees. The 52-year-old Grammy winner, whose actual title is Robert Kelly, was arrested in February on 10 counts in Illinois involving 4 ladies, three of whom have been minors when the alleged abuse occurred. He pleaded not responsible to these fees and was launched on bail.

Then on Could 30, Prepare dinner County prosecutors added 11 extra sex-related counts in opposition to the R&B singer involving one of many ladies who accused him of sexually abusing her when she was underage.

His attorneys couldn’t instantly be reached for touch upon the federal fees. Fitzpatrick mentioned Kelly’s arraignment date and time had not but been set.

Kelly has confronted mounting authorized troubles this yr after Lifetime aired a documentary “Surviving R. Kelly,” which revisited allegations of sexual abuse of ladies. The sequence adopted the BBC’s “R Kelly: Intercourse, Women & Videotapes,” releasedin 2018, that alleged the singer was holding ladies in opposition to their will and working a “intercourse cult.”

Quickly after the discharge of the Lifetime documentary, Prepare dinner County State’s Lawyer Kim Foxx mentioned her workplace had been inundated with calls in regards to the allegations within the documentary. Her workplace’s investigation led to the costs in February and extra counts added in Could.

Kelly averted jail after comparable allegations have been made greater than a decade in the past. A jury in 2008 acquitted him of kid pornography fees that stemmed from the publication by the Chicago Solar-Instances of a videotape allegedly displaying Kelly having intercourse with a minor.
