R. Kelly Arrested on Child Porn Charges

 

R. Kelly has been arrested in Chicago on federal sex crime charges that include child porn and obstruction of justice. 

Back in June Kelly plead not guilty to eleven felonies that were related to sexual assault and other types of abuse in Illinois.

This alleged incident took place in January 2010 when the victim was under the age of 18.

TMZ reported the story:

"7:16 AM PT--TMZ has just obtained the 5-count federal indictment out of the Eastern District of NY and they include racketeering and several violations of the Mann Act and allegations of forced labor.

According to the indictment ... Kelly and others engaged in a scheme to coerce minors to participate in sexually explicit acts on camera. The feds say the purpose of the scheme was to "promote R. Kelly's music and the R. Kelly brand and to recruit women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with Kelly."

In the docs, federal prosecutors say, "Kelly and his crew traveled throughout the United States and abroad to recruit these women and girls"

The new federal indictment seems to validate claims of parents who say their children were essentially held hostage. The indictment says the women and girls "were not permitted to leave their room without receiving permission from Kelly, including to eat or go to the bathroom." They were also prohibited from looking at other men and to keep their heads down and call him "Daddy."

The feds also say Kelly made "threats of force and physically restrained the women" to obtain their labor and services.

In at least one of the cases, he allegedly took a minor to California and committed rape, abduction, carnal abuse of a child and seduction. Kelly also allegedly exposed at least one minor victim to an infectious venereal disease.

Violations of the Mann Act, which prohibits the transportation of anyone across state lines for illicit sexual purposes, constitute 4 of the 5 counts against Kelly.
