R.Kelly Turns Himself In To Police, Lawyer Says Singer Is Disappointed & Depressed [VIDEO]
R. Kelly has turned himself in to a Chicago police station on Friday night. The 52-year-old singer was indicted earlier Friday on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four victims. Kelly was surrounded by reporters and photographers, as he arrived in a black vehicle. He was helped out by members of his team and escorted into the police station.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says that he will appear Saturday afternoon in court. Prior to Kelly turning himself in, a press conference was held by attorney Michael Avenatti who said a 14-year-old girl was allegedly seen with R. Kelly on a video.
During the press conference, Avenatti also said that the video shows two separate scenes on two separate days at Kelly’s residence at the time during the late 1990s. Avenatti says during the video both the victim and Kelly reference her age 10 times.
Avenatti says he represents six clients, including two victims, two parents and two people who he describes as
“knowing R. Kelly and being within his inner circle for the better part of 25 years.”
Prior to Kelly turning himself in, his attorney Steve Greenberg said that the singer is “shell-shocked” by the aggravated sexual abuse indictment against him. He also said that the singer is “extraordinarily disappointed and depressed” by the 10 counts filed against him. He said Kelly maintains his innocence and looks forward to being acquitted at trial.
