Arrest Warrant Issued For R.Kelly In Minnesota
An arrest warrant has been issued for R. Kelly after he failed to appear in court in Minnesota.
The problem is that Kelly is currently in jail in Chicago for other sexual abuse charges. The alleged crimes in Minnesota stem back to August 2001 when he allegedly asked a 17-year-old girl to get naked and dance for money. There is also an additional charge for soliciting a minor into prostitution.
The warrant is apparently just a formality as the Minnesota D.A.’s Office revealed to TMZ that prosecutors understand that the federal authorities in Chicago will not give them access to R. Kelly until his federal case is finalized.
Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg had a few words in regards to the warrant, “They never came to get him, wtf was he supposed to do, telepathically transport himself?”
Despite this not being the singer’s fault, his past is really coming to haunt him. Kelly is currently calling general population at the Chicago Correctional Center his home.
