American singer and songwriter, R.Kelly has been arrested on a 10-count charge of aggravated sexual abuse against four victims and three of them were underage at the time of the abuse, with the reported crimes allegedly taking place between 1998 and 2010.
A judge in Chicago set Kelly’s bond at $1 million – $250,000 for each of the alleged victims in the case – but to leave police custody, he would be required to pay $100,000 – 10% of the total bond. R.Kelly was unable to pay his bail however, with his attorney Steve Greenberg announcing that despite the bond seeming ‘fair and reasonable given the allegations’, R Kelly was unable to pay yet. He said that R.Kelly ‘really doesn’t have any money at the moment’, apparently due to ‘mismanagement’ and ‘bad deals’, he explained that Kelly would ultimately be able to pay the required $100,000 after he had worked it all out.
If convicted, R.Kelly faces three to seven years in prison for each count. However, Kelly has denied all the allegations
