R&B singer, R.Kelly, failed to appear in court on Wednesday (April 24th). The plaintiff identified as H.W. in court documents stated that R.Kelly sexually abused her in the 90s when she was 16 years old.
Kelly received the court summons last month while he served time in Cook county jail for failing to pay child support. Since Kelly was a no show in court, the judge ruled in favor of Kelly’s accuser due to Kelly and his legal team ignored the suit.
Besides this case, Kelly is charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving four other victims. If he is convicted he could serve up to 70 years behind bars.
