Judge Orders R. Kelly Transfer to New York for Court Hearing
The singer will have an Aug. 2 hearing on federal sex charges.
A judge has ordered R&B singer R. Kelly to be transferred from Chicago to New York City for an Aug. 2 hearing on federal sex charges.
Judge Harry Leinenweber issued the transfer order on Thursday.
Among other accusations, prosecutors allege that the Grammy winner had sex with underage girls, that he filmed himself doing so and that he tried to cover it up.
A former Kelly employee, Milton "June" Brown, pleaded not guilty on Friday in Chicago to a federal charge of conspiracy to receive child pornography.
