Singer R. Kelly Turns Himself In To Police After Being Charged With Sexual Abuse

R Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, at least nine of which involve minors.

The R&B star, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has faced decades of claims of sexual abuse against women and teenagers below the age of consent.

He has never been convicted and has previously denied other allegations.

An arrest warrant was issued, and the 52-year-old turned himself in to police in Chicago later on Friday. His lawyer says he is “shell-shocked”.

R. Kelly was placed in handcuffs as he entered a Chicago police station Friday night. Kelly didn’t speak to the media.

Steve Greenberg told The Associated Press that his client was “extraordinarily disappointed and depressed” by the charges and maintains his innocence.

The indictment come just weeks after a documentary series called Surviving R Kelly aired.

It contained decades of allegations of abuse against R Kelly, from many women, including the singer’s ex-wife.

Prosecutors in Cook County announced the aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges, involving four victims, on Friday.

They say they took place between 1998 and 2010. Documents say at least three of the victims were aged between 13 and 16 at the time of their reported assaults.

If convicted, Kelly faces a maximum of seven years in prison for each count.
