9R. Kelly – Arrested for Sexually Assaulting a Minor
On February 3, 2002, a video surfaced allegedly showing Kelly engaging in sex with, and urinating on, an underage girl. The story, which was released by an unknown source, was sent to the Chicago Sun-Times. In June 2002, Kelly was indicted in Chicago on 21 counts of child pornography. That same month, Kelly was apprehended by Miami Police Department on a Chicago arrest warrant, and Polk County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search of Kelly’s residence in Davenport, Florida. During the search officers recovered 12 images of an alleged underage girl on a digital camera wrapped in a towel in a duffel bag which allegedly depicted Kelly “involved in sexual conduct with the female minor.”
