Kelly Hit With New Charges In New York, Charges Include Racketeering Crimes

R. Kelly has new criminal charges brought against him in an organized crime case

The Jap District of NY on Friday filed a superseding indictment in opposition to R. Kelly, who already faces a number of fees in three states, that features extra fees stemming from two accusers who've been newly added to the swimsuit, in keeping with Rolling Stone.

The 53-year-old "I Believe I Can Fly" singer is accused in a revised federal indictment filed in Brooklyn of giving an underage girl, as well as a woman herpes in 2015 and 2017.

Last month, federal prosecutors in IL also filed a set of superseding charges against the singer, to which he has pleaded not guilty.

As in their previous indictment, the NY prosecutors allege that Kelly and his associates - including "managers, bodyguards, drivers, personal assistants and runners for Kelly, as well as members of Kelly's entourage", were acting as an organized crime ring.

Bastian said he will give up his salary for six months , joining other airline executives who have announced similar measures. Delta, American Airlines and United Airlines announced fresh rounds of flight cutbacks soon after Trump announced the ban.

The last-named woman also accuses Kelly of "knowing exposure of infectious venereal disease", as the singer "engaged in unprotected sexual intercourse with Jane Doe #6 without first informing Jane Doe #6 that he had contracted herpes and obtaining her consent to sexual intercourse in these circumstances", according to the indictment states.

On Twitter, one of Kelly's attorneys, Steve Greenberg, wrote Friday afternoon that the singer's team does "not believe it [the new set of charges] fundamentally changes anything".

Robert Kelly is now behind bars awaiting trial. Kelly is due in federal court to enter a plea to an updated federal indictment that includes sex abuse allegations involving a new accuser. There are also no arraignment dates set for the charges, according to USA Today. Kelly may very well be arraigned on the brand new fees at his subsequent scheduled listening to for this particular case, which takes place on March 5.

Chicago federal prosecutors are expected to file more charges, which will likely push his trial date in Chicago to October 13. The singer's NY trial begins on July 7.
