R. Kelly is currently remaining behind bars, in shackles. Tuesday, inside of a Chicago courtroom Mr. Bump n Grind pleaded not guilty to 13 federal charges, including child porn and obstruction of justice.

The indictment was one of two federal cases issued against Kell’s last week. One was in Illinois and the other in New York.

Federal prosecutors in the northern district of Illinois say that Kelly made substantial hush money payments to silence the alleged victims, which were five girls and members of their families. In addition to the Illinois federal indictment, federal prosecutors, in the Eastern district of New York unsealed a separate, fi e count indictment of R Kelly last Friday. Those charges include one count of racketeering related to kidnapping and four violations of the Mann Act, which refers to transporting girls over state lines for sex trafficking. There are five alleged victims in the New York indictment, including three girls.

During Tuesdays court appearance, the judge decided that Kelly will remain in custody as he awaits trial in Chicago. According to the Chicago Tribune, he will be taken by U. S. marshall’s to face the New York indictment in Brooklyn.
