R. Kelly Pleads Not Guilty, Can’t Meet Bail Amount

R. Kelly

For those that support Kelly's accusers, they didn't mind that the singer, who was arrested on 10 counts of sexual abuse charges, would possibly have to stay behind bars until his trial.

The Singer pleaded not guilty to charges he sexually abused four women, three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged assaults, over a span of a dozen years.

"He'll be out within an hour", Cook County Sheriff's spokeswoman Sophia Ansari told AFP.

The R&B singer's bail amount was 10 percent of the $1 million bond set by a judge Saturday.

Kelly's next court date has been scheduled for March 22. Greenberg said he hasn't seen the videos and can't confirm whether Kelly is in them.

Kim Foxx - the state's attorney for Cook County, which includes Chicago - told journalists the alleged crimes occurred between 1998 and 2010.

This is a developing story.

Avenatti earlier this month gave Chicago prosecutors approximately 40 minutes of previously unreleased footage of Kelly allegedly having sex with a young teenager.

Kelly appeared at the arraignment hearing on Monday with defence lawyer Steve Greenberg, and the case was assigned to Cook County associate judge Lawrence Flood.

In that video, Avenatti says Kelly can be heard "clearly stating" to the victim: "Give me that 14-year-old p-y", "Show Daddy that 14-year-old p-y", "Spread those legs and show me that 14-year-old p-y", and "Give me that 14-year-old booty hole".

He said his team was in the process of obtaining a third tape of a similar nature, and that additional witnesses had come forward over the weekend.

"There had been a question if Kelly needed make good on $161,663 in back child support before posting bail, but lawyers agreed he could post bond even with that debt looming over him".

Each count of the new charges carries up to seven years in prison, making it possible for him to receive up to 70 years. Kelly is not allowed contact with any of the victims or people under the age of 18. He did not say if it was the same 14-year-old girl who he alleged was in the first video he turned over to the authorities. An infamous tape that allegedly showed Kelly urinating on a young girl formed the basis of his 2008 child pornography trial; Kelly denied it was him on the tape, and was acquitted after the girl said to be on screen refused to testify. Greenberg said Kelly denies the allegations.

New evidence has surfaced against R. Kelly including a video where he was caught during the act of the abuse and a t-shirt submitted by one of the victims containing Kelly's DNA.
