R. Kelly Due In Chicago Federal Court Today

(Chicago, IL-AP) – R. Kelly is expected to appear in a Chicago federal courtroom today. The singer is charged with federal sex crimes and racketeering in two separate indictments filed last week in Chicago and Brooklyn, New York.

The judge is expected to consider whether the R&B star should be freed from jail as he awaits trial. Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti represents three victims in the federal cases.

He claims Kelly paid two-million-dollars to keep the alleged victim and her family off the witness stand in the 2008 child pornography trial that ended with the singer’s acquittal.
