R. Kelly would like the world to believe that he is an innocent man.
How? By entering a not guilty plea in the new round of sexual assault and abuse charges he is facing.
The disgraced singer is accused of raping several children and learned that the police may have unearthed more recordings of him molesting them…much to the horror of those in his inner circle as they are now being looked into.
Kelly was hit last week with 11 felonies related to sexual assault and various abuse in Illinois. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office charged him with 5 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, 4 counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and 2 counts of criminal sexual assault.
In legal docs, Kelly is accused of forcing contact between his penis and the alleged victim’s mouth and committing an act of sexual penetration on a victim listed only as “J.P.” The alleged incident occurred in January 2010, when the victim was under the age of 18.
Today he stood before a judge and entered a not guilty plea with hopes doing so will see him avoid jail time.
His crisis manager Darrell Johnson maintains that he is innocent.
His victims say otherwise.
