Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari confirmed on Monday night R Kelly had raised the $100,000 bail, which was 10% of the $1m bond set by a judge over the weekend.
If convicted, he would face up to seven years in prison for each count.
According to Cook County Prosecutor Kimberly Foxx, the alleged abuses took place across twelve years from 1998 - 2010. And in an interview posted on YouTube, Kelly, who grew up on Chicago's South Side, recalled going to McDonald's every morning with his mother, where the two split a coffee and a Danish because that was "all we could afford".
Valencia responded by saying she doesn't support paedophilia or the abuse of women and that Kelly is innocent until proven guilty. He later invited her to his home in the Chicago suburb of Olympia Fields, where they had sex multiple times starting the following May, when she was 16, according to the documents, which said he also slapped, choked and spit on the girl.
Allred also said Kelly's accusers have been subjected to abuse by the singer's fans. He said his client's ability to post bail is not affected by a child support case. His attorney Steve Greenberg entered the plea for Kelly in a Chicago courtroom Monday.
"In response to press inquiries, below is further information regarding the videotape we provided yesterday to prosecutors", Avenatti wrote in the tweet, while adding that "it leaves no doubt as to R. Kelly's guilt as to these serious sex crimes against underage girls".Читайте также: Fire at government-run airshow in India destroys hundreds of cars
Kelly, who was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, has denied wrongdoing and his attorney says he's confident the singer will be vindicated.
Prosecutors say the victims include a teenager Kelly met when she sought an autograph during his previous trial on child pornography charges, another he met at her 16th-birthday party and his hairdresser, who was then 24.
"He would cruise McDonald's near high schools and have someone from his team go up to a girl, get her number", the documentary's executive producer, Dream Hampton, said during a recent NPR interview.
The award-winning singer, who pleaded not guilty to all counts, spent two nights behind bars when he was unable to come up with the money.
The singer's next court date is March 22.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
