R Kelly arrested on 13 federal sex crime charges

R&B singer R Kelly has been arrested on s*x trafficking charges, according to American law officials. The 52-year old was arrested in Chicago on Thursday night on 13 federal sex crime charges, and was expected to be taken to New York, according to officials.

US attorney spokesman Joseph Fitzpatrick said that the indictment against Kelly handed down in federal court for the northern district of Illinois also contained charges that revolve around child p*rnography and obstruction of justice.

“The counts include child p*rn, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice,” Fitzpatrick said, adding that further details would be released later Friday.

The arrest was the second time this year that Kelly has been taken into custody in Chicago on s*x charges.
