Federal Judge Sets Tentative April Trial Date For R. Kelly


A federal judge in Chicago has tentatively set an April 27, 2020 trial date for R&B star R. Kelly on charges of child pornography, enticement, and obstruction of justice.

The judge acknowledged that the trial date could be changed, as Kelly faces similar cases in three other judicial districts.

Kelly was recently moved into the general population of the Chicago federal jail where he awaits trial.

The 52-year-old singer has also been charged with sexual assault, kidnapping, racketeering, underage prostitution, solicitation, and other charges, in Illinois, Minnesota and New York.
