R. Kelly Pleads Not Guilty to 11 New Sex Crime Charges
The R&B singer faces 30 years in prison
Published Jun 06, 2019R. Kelly pleaded not guilty to 11 new charges of sexual assault and abuse during a Chicago court hearing this morning.
At the arraignment in Cook County, the R&B singer's legal team entered the plea, with Kelly himself also appearing before the judge.
As previously reported late last month, Kelly was charged with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault by force, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a victim between the ages of 13 to 16.
This string of charges contains prison terms much longer than those levelled against Kelly back in February. If found guilty, Kelly faces 30 years in prison.
Kelly has denied any wrongdoing both inside and outside of court.
