Singer, R. Kelly was arrested again on Thursday night. He was already out on bail awaiting trial for sexual assault allegations. That was a state charge. Thursday night the FEDS nabbed the R&B crooner. The fed charges seem to be a little more serious than the state charges, even though he was already facing a heavy prison sentence if convicted in the state. The feds charged R. Kelly with sex trafficking, child pornography, and some other charges which have yet to be announced.
According to NBC News (@nbcNews), R. Kelly was snatched up by Homeland Security agents as he walked his dog in a neighborhood in his native city of Chicago. The federal indictment against Kelly was allegedly filed in Chicago and New York City. The singer is expected to be transferred to New York to face the additional charges. As of Thursday night, Kelly was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago. Federal prosecutors for the Eastern District Of New York are expected to hold a press conference on Friday where they will announce the additional charges filed against Kelly.
