A huge sex trafficking ring is accused being perpetuated by iconic singer R. Kelly.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the courts have been backed up for the case of R. Kelly.The fallen star has been incarcerated at Chicago’s Metropolitan Center since July 11 of 2019. It now seems there is some developments to have the trial advance by this summer. New York is not the only location that R. Kelly has legal issues with. He has multiple investigations occurring simultaneously in several states.
In New York, federal authorities have alleged that R. Kelly and his entourage led a massive sex-trafficking ring that involved underage girls. Kelly has long denied any wrongdoing in all cases against him both in interviews, most infamously the sit-down with Gayle King, and through statements via his lawyer, Steve Greenberg.
According to The Associated Press, Brooklyn prosecutors allege that Kelly “led an enterprise made up of his managers, bodyguards and other employees who helped him recruit women and girls for sex.”
Investigators have reportedly lined up alleged victims who are prepared to testify to their experiences. For now, all of their names are marked as “Jane Doe” in court documents and it’s reported that the jury in this trial will remain anonymous. Today (April 15), Greenberg reportedly stated that the singer is “looking forward” to having his day in court.
