R. Kelly Hit With New Sex Trafficking Charges
R. Kelly is pleading not guilty to a string of new sex trafficking charges in New York.
The "I Believe I Can Fly" singer entered a plea of not guilty on Thursday, denying the new indictment which adds several allegations of abuse from a victim referred to only as Jane Doe 5, including knowingly spreading the herpes virus to two people. Prosecutors say if convicted, two of the new counts carry minimum sentences of 10 years. Kelly, who has been held in Chicago on federal charges since last year, has also been charged with racketeering conspiracy in the U.S. District Court in New York.
Kelly has denied all allegations.
