(Chicago, IL-AP) — R-and-B singer R Kelly is staying behind bars. A federal judge ordered he be held without bond on sex crime charges.
This means Kelly will be taken from Chicago to New York to face a separate count of allegedly sexually abusing girls across the country. Kelly was arrested Thursday evening and faces a total of 18 charges in Chicago and New York.
Kelly’s attorney argue there’s no evidence he’s a risk to children, but prosecutors say the 52-year-old is an “extreme danger.”
