Child pornography: Singer R. Kelly returns to trial on Monday
After being sentenced to 30 years in prison for sex trafficking in June in New York, American musician R. Kelly returns to trial Monday in Chicago on charges of child pornography and obstruction of justice .
Jury selection is expected to begin on Monday.
According to several complaints, the fallen star allegedly incited women, when they were minors, to perform sexual acts with him. At least two of them are expected to testify, court documents show.
In 2008, those same charges brought R. Kelly to trial, where he was acquitted. A video that allegedly shows the 55-year-old sexually assaulting a minor was also implicated.
According to federal prosecutors in Illinois, the singer obstructed justice during this trial dating back to 14 years ago.
A. Kelly will stand trial alongside her former manager, Derrel McDavid, as well as his associate Milton “June” Brown. They are accused of helping the former star intimidate and bribe witnesses while concealing evidence during the 2008 trial.
