R&B star R. Kelly indicted for child porn

Quote:
(CNN) -- Chart-topping R&B superstar R. Kelly has been indicted on 21 counts of child pornography by an Illinois grand jury, a source with the Cook County state's attorney office told CNN Wednesday.

He is not in custody, said Chicago police, who added that it is customary for high-profile defendants to turn themselves in.

An attorney for the Grammy-winning singer said his client is currently out of town, and will present himself to police "whenever and wherever" they tell him to.

The felony charge carries a prison term of up to 15 years, and a fine of up to $100,000. a


Prosecutors investigated Kelly for more than three years after allegations surfaced that he was having an affair with the then 14-year-old daughter of an associate. The girl and her parents denied the allegations.

The accusations arise from a videotape allegedly received by the Chicago Sun-Times, which passed it along to the sex crimes unit of the Chicago Police Department. Illinois law prohibits producing or disseminating child pornography or soliciting a minor to participate in sex acts on tape or film.

Kelly has previously settled lawsuits brought by two women who accused him of having sex with them when they were minors. Documents have also shown that Kelly married the late singer Aaliyah, his former protege, when she was just 15. The marriage was later annulled.

A third lawsuit was filed recently by a Chicago woman who accused Kelly of impregnating her when she was a teen-ager and forcing her to have an abortion.

The Grammy-winning singer, whose full name is Robert Kelly, is known for inspirational hits such as "I Believe I Can Fly," but also raunchy ones like "Feelin' On Yo Booty." He has also worked as a producer with Celine Dion, Michael and Janet Jackson, and the Isley Brothers.

What is there to say that isn't wrong? He likes to have kids. He's a sick person- this isn't a conspiracy by rich white people.

At least you'd get a Mars bar and a can of Coke from a priest for your troubles.....

Nah, things have gone pretty much to shit here in Ireland on that front. I remember the first major scandal that rocked the church here - it was about 11 years ago when the bishop of Galway, Eamonn Casey, was found to have had a child in the States.

Compared to what is coming out now, the guy was a saint....
