SEXUAL ABUSE: R. KELLY’S BOND SET AT $1M
R Kelly’s bond has been set at $1,000,000 today by a Cook County judge.
The Grammy-winning star was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four female victims, including three who were between the ages of 13 and 17 at the time.
Kelly’s lawyer Steven Greenberg argued for a lower bail, stating that his client was having financial difficulties, CNN reported.
Kelly was also ordered to give up his passport; “Contrary to the song, he doesn’t like to fly,” Greenberg said, making an “I Believe I Can Fly” joke. Kelly and his associates were also told to have no contact with the alleged victims, while Kelly must only have relations with women 18 years and older.
