Award-winning musician, R. Kelly was arrested on Thursday night in Chicago over sex trafficking charges.

According to CNN, Kelly was arrested by New York police detectives and investigators with the Department of Homeland Security while walking with his dog, and has been charged with sex trafficking in New York.

His arrest comes after a 13-count indictment in the Northern District of Illinois that includes child pornography and obstruction of justice charges. For over 20 years, R Kelly has faced accusations of abuse, manipulations and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women.

In February, Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims, with three of them being underage girls. He, however, pleaded not guilty.

In late May, a grand jury had indicted him on 11 more charges pertaining to one of the four accusers, including aggravated criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony; and criminal sexual assault, a Class 1 felony and according to Illinois law, a person convicted of Class X felonies can get up to 30 years in prison.

However, Kelly was freed on a $1 million bond set in February until Thursday when he was arrested again by the New York Police Department.

Confirming the arrest, the international broadcaster quotes R Kelly’s attorney as saying the singer was arrested but declined further comments.
