R. Kelly was back in a New York City courtroom on August 2 to enter a plea in his racketeering and sex trafficking case. Fans started lining up outside of the courthouse at 10 a.m. local time to show their unwavering support for the 52-year-old singer
According to TMZ, the R&B singer plead not guilty to the five-count indictment and was promptly denied bail. The indictment comes out of the Eastern District of New York and includes several violations of the Mann Act (which prohibits the transportation of anyone across state lines for illicit sexual purposes) and allegations of forced labor as well as kidnapping and racketeering.
The New York indictment is separate from the 13-count indictment in Illinois federal court.
Two of Kelly’s supposed girlfriends, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, were also on-hand to offer moral support.
