July 12 (UPI) -- Less than a day after he was arrested for charges in Chicago, singer R. Kelly was faced with five new charges in New York City Friday that accuse him of racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and sexual exploitation of a child.
Prosecutors said Kelly and his entourage recruited women and girls at concerts and other venues to "engage in illegal sexual activity." Kelly is the only person named in Friday's indictment. He's also accused of having sex with women younger than 18 and not disclosing a sexually transmitted disease. He also produced child pornography by asking minors to send him photos, prosecutors said.
