R. Kelly To Plead Not Guilty To
Aaliyah Charge After Lawyer Reads Indictment
Federal prosecutors believe R. Kelly ran his music business operations as a front to lure under-aged teenagers over for sexual pleasures for two decades.
The singer is facing a bribery charge for conspiring to get Aaliyah a phony I.D. in 1994 when she was just 15-year-old. In turn, that made way for R. Kelly to marry the youngster according to the courts.
Robert Kelly is getting set to face the new charge the courts has put in front of him.
R. Kelly is going to plead not guilty to a charge that he helped the late R&B singer Aaliyah obtain a fake ID. The singer is adamant to clear his name of his accusation concerning his relationship with Aaliyah.
Back in August, Greenberg revealed R. Kelly had a very limited ability to read, but Kelly is very aware of the misconduct being thrown at him about getting with an underage Aaliyah.
“I have met with Mr. Kelly, provided him with a copy of the Superseding Indictment, read it to him, and made sure that he understands it,” R. Kelly’s attorney Stephen A. Greenberg confirmed.
“He is prepared to plead not guilty in writing,” Stephen A. Greenberg confirmed.
As reported earlier this year, the niece of R. Kelly’s one time protege, Sparkle, plans to supposedly work with authorities this time around about an alleged sex tape she has with the singer when she was 14 years old.
