Judge orders R. Kelly moved to New York for court hearing
CHICAGO (AP) — A judge has ordered R&B singer R. Kelly to be transferred from Chicago to New York City for an Aug. 2 hearing on federal sex charges.
Judge Harry Leinenweber issued the transfer order on Thursday.
Among other accusations, prosecutors allege that the Grammy-award winner had sex with underage girls, that he filmed himself doing so and that he tried to cover it up.
A former Kelly employee, Milton “June” Brown, pleaded not guilty in Chicago on Friday to a federal charge of conspiracy to receive child pornography.
