Earlier Wednesday, the singer was indicted by a grand jury that charged him with 21 counts of child pornography, according to an Associated Press report. The charges break down to seven counts of videotaping sex acts with a minor, seven counts of producing the video and seven counts of soliciting or enticing the girl into having illicit sex.
The charges stem from a videotape sent anonymously to the Chicago Sun-Times that appears to show R. Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl, allegedly the niece of Sparkle, a singer and past collaborator with the Grammy award-winning singer. The felony charges against Kelly yield a maximum jail term of 15 years and a fine up to $100,000.
