to connectVideoR. Kelly is charged with solicitation of a 17-year-old girl in Minnesota
R. Kelly, the 52-year-old singer, has been charged with prostitution, and the request is from Minnesota, reportedly, after the invitation of a 17-year-old girl into his hotel room and paid her $200 to dance naked with him in 2001. Each of the misdemeanor charges is punishable by up to five years in prison.
R. Kelly is facing charges of sexual abuse involving a new prosecutor, a revised federal indictment — unsealed Friday in Chicago — against the disgraced R&B singer has revealed.
The 13-count superseding indictment does not tack on any extra fees on Kelly, however, the filing makes reference to a new prosecutor’s office, known as the “Small 6″ during the course of the removal of a previous mention of a ‘Minor ‘ 2” which means that there will still be a total of five alleged victims in the city’s federal case.
The updated indictment includes multiple counts of child pornography, and is not substantially different from the original July criminal complaint, which had 13 counts.

While some of the details are available on the “Small, 6,” the indictment alleges that the new prosecutor’s office first got in touch with Kelly, around 1997 or 1998, if they are, it would have to be 14 or 15 years old. The submission of any further claims by the disgraced singer engaged in sexual contact or sexual activity at that time, and for a few years before they turned 18.
