R. Kelly Beamed Into Court To Plead Not Guilty To Getting Aaliyah A Fake I.D.
(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly appeared in court today (December 18th) via a video conference, to plead not guilty to a bribery charge.
The rap star wanted to submit his plea in writing, but Federal prosecutors objected to the idea over concerns the R&B star might not understand the charge due to his alleged inability to read.
The Feds claim R. Kelly was involved in the forgery of documents in 1994 to get a fake I.D. for the late R&B singer Aaliyah, so he could marry her even though she was 15-years-old at the time.
The singer is accused of using his ultra-successful career to lure young women into a "sex cult," aided by his managers, bodyguards and personal assistants.
In addition to charges in New York, R. Kelly is facing trials in Illinois and Minnesota.
