    You said it yourself, she is friends with him. That’s the most important factor.

    Why do you keep bringing race into it?
    It was the community who brought the race card into it, by saying that no one cared about black girls that's why R. Kelly was not prosecuted, when it was the community who actually protected him from being charged. He even had tons of supporters in the trial.

    Erykah Badu is anti-Trump and has always been vocal about pushing forth female empowerment and equality, but she is a hypocrite when race plays a factor.
    If you're going to blame an entire race you then come with something better than this... And how do you go from "it was the community who actually protected him from being charged" to "He even had tons of supporters in the trial" ??? There possibly couldn't be a trial without him being charged first, so the alleged "protection" from the supposed "community" was of no consequence after all :-?

    Glorious day.

    -----------------------------

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/r-...source=twitter

    A Cook County judge has approved a no-bail arrest warrant for embattled R&B superstar R. Kelly, who was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four victims, at least three of them minors, in Cook County Friday morning, records show.

    The alleged crimes span from 1998 to 2010, records show. The minors were between 13 and 16, prosecutors allege.

    Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, said early Friday afternoon that he had not been notified that his client had been charged. Greenberg has said in the past that his client denies any wrongdoing.

    Cook County prosecutors appeared before Judge Dennis Porter Friday to approve the warrant for Kelly, records show.

    Michael Avenatti, a well known attorney who said he recently provided a videotape of R. Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, applauded prosecutors for filing charges. It is unclear if the charges are related to the videotape the attorney provided.

    “The day of reckoning has arrived” for R Kelly, Avenatti said in a tweet.

    Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx was planning to hold a news conference on the charges at 2 p.m. Friday.

    Avenatti was also planning to hold a news conference in Chicago later Friday afternoon.

    The new charges against Kelly come less than two months after Foxx made a public plea for new Kelly accusers to come forward so that the office could investigate. Foxx said she was “sickened” by the accounts described in the “Surviving R. Kelly” Lifetime television series. The Sun-Times reported that at least two women came forward after Foxx made her plea.

    Good news indeed! It is still beyond me why it took them all these years to charge him.

    I hope he won't get away with it, because this is just step 1.

    Let's now let the law do its work - he's been subject to trial by media and I hope that the law now recognises the mounting evidence behind these allegations and sends him to jail for many years to come.

    The irony is that he may not be able to afford the bail because of how much money he's previously spent on keeping victims quiet.

    Obviously stealing or something like that is in no way comparable to abusing teenage girls.

    And he's struggling to make bail. His friends are disappearing.

    -----------------------------------

    https://www.nme.com/news/music/r-kel...-abuse-2453834

    Kelly is struggling to come up with 10% of the $1M dollar bail money

    R Kelly has pleaded “not guilty” to ten charges of aggravated sexual assault in a Chicago court this morning.

    The 52-year-old singer was granted bond ahead of his next court appearance on March 22, but has not as yet been able to find 10% of the money required for him to meet bail conditions, and so remains in custody.

    Last week, Judge John Lyke Jr set the bond on the singer’s release from custody at $1m at the first court hearing into the singer’s 10 charges of sexual abuse. He also ordered that Kelly and his associates are not to contact the four women who have accused Kelly of sexual offences, nor any women under the age of 18. He was further ordered to hand in his passport to prevent him from attempting to flee the US.


    Kelly’s lawyer Steven Greenberg had previously asked for a lower bail sum, arguing that the singer has financial difficulties. Greenberg said Kelly’s ongoing legal issues has left his finances in a “mess” but added that he hoped the singer would be able to post bail by Tuesday. Greenberg said confidants were making arrangements to pay the 10% of the £$1M sum needed to release the singer on bail.

    On hearing that his client had to surrender his passport, Greenberg joked: “Contrary to the song, he doesn’t like to fly,” a reference to ‘I Believe I Can Fly’. The lawyer went on to blame mismanagement and bad contracts for his clients difficulties.


    Meanwhile, attorney Michael Avanatti, who is said to represent two of the alleged victims, said his legal team will provide a second video on Monday that allegedly shows Kelly assaulting another minor.

    In the indictment for the case, Kelly has been accused of “sexual penetration” of women aged 13-16. The age of consent in Illinois, where the charges have been filed, is 17. If convicted, the singer could face between 30 and 70 years in prison.

    Last week (February 22), State Attorney Kim Foxx outlined the charges against Kelly. Four charges relate to a girl identified as HW between May 1998-1999. Two charges relate to a girl identified as RL from September 1998-September 2001. Another, LC alleges sexual abuse took place on February 18, 2003.

    The most recent case in the charges comes from a victim who has been identified as JP. Three charges are based on her claims of sexual abuse from May 2009-January 2010.


    After the hearing, Greenberg told reporters that Kelly did not force anyone to have sex, saying: “He’s a rock star. He doesn’t have to have nonconsensual sex.”

    Last week, new claims were made against the star by two more woman. Latresa Scaff and Rochelle Washington claim they were 15 and 16 respectively when Kelly plied them with drugs and alcohol and had sex with the older girl while she was intoxicated. The women claim the incident happened after they were picked out of the crowd by security staff at one of Kelly’s Baltimore concerts in “either 1995 or 1996”, the BBC has reported.

    Claims of sexual abuse have plagued Kelly for decades, but were brought into the light once more recently following the release of docuseries Surviving R Kelly, which featured interviews with Kelly’s alleged victims and recently had its debut on TV in the UK.

    In January, Kelly issued a statement through Greenberg also denying all the allegations: “The allegations aren’t true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone.”

    Kelly has previously denied all accusations of sexual abuse.

    I find it hard to believe that he doesn't have $100k in bank, is there a reason to pretend that you don't have money when it comes to law in US or something?

    It could be that people with money can be seen as a flight risk because they have the means to flee (thank you Law and Order SVU) If he is pretending that could be why. Or he could just be broke lol
