Kelly Due for Release After Posting $100,000 Bail

R. Kelly

(TMZ)R. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

Kelly's case was assigned to Cook County Associate Judge Lawrence Flood, who will preside over the trial.

R. Kelly's defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, speaks to reporters at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse after R. Kelly was ordered held on a $1 million bond, in Chicago on February 23, 2019.

A Chicago judge set Kelly's bond at $1 million with $100,000 in cash needed to get the recording artist out of jail immediately. On Saturday afternoon, Greenberg told reporters that his client's finances are "a mess", and that "he really doesn't have any money".

Defense attorney Steve Greenberg maintains Kelly's innocence: "He didn't force anyone to have sex".

This is a developing story.

Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges alleging he filmed himself having sex with his goddaughter, a girl estimated to have been as young as 13, in 2008.

But she said none of her clients is included in the Cook County case.

"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".

"Kelly will be in court around 10 a.m. ET and should be released shortly afterwards".

The second tape reportedly shows R. Kelly "coaching" the girl in sexual techniques, choking her and having anal intercourse.

Nearly immediately after Kelly posted his $100,000 bail late Monday and headed to an iconic McDonald's in downtown Chicago, social media lit up with reminders of allegations in the documentary "Surviving R. Kelly" that the R&B star would search for teen girls at McDonald's restaurants. Mr. Kelly is strong.

"He has to rely on others acting on his behalf", Greenberg said. Greenberg told the judge that Kelly isn't wealthy despite decades of success creating hit songs.

The Cook County clerk's office was receiving calls about helping out with Kelly's bond, according officials in bond court over the weekend.

Kelly surrendered to Chicago police shortly after 8 p.m. Friday at the Central District Police Station and spent the night in lockup.

"He's a rock star".

Kelly has denied the charges.

R. Kelly is being charged for soliciting an underage girl for sexual abuse, as well as a year-long sexual relationship with a girl that he met when she was 16-years-old.

The 10 charges are all Class 2 felonies in IL, including a probational offense that carries a potential sentence of 3-7 years.

The 52-year-old Kelly faces 10 sexual abuse counts involving four victims, three of whom were minors. Probation is also an option.
