R. Kelly is arrested by the feds for new charges while walking his dog in Chicago

Singer R. Kelly was arrested in Chicago on Thursday night on federal sex crimes charges, the sources told CNN.

Kelly is accused of sex trafficking in New York and trying to influence a case in Atlanta, and was arrested while walking his dog, said a source with knowledge of the arrest.
His arrest comes after a 13-count indictment in the Northern District of Illinois that includes child pornography and obstruction of justice charges, said Joseph Fitzpatrick, assistant US attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.
The New York Police Department, the National Security Investigation and other federal partners assisted in the arrest, a source in the law said.
He has faced accusations of abuse for decades.
Until Thursday, Kelly was free with a $ 1 million bonus set in February.
She has faced accusations of abuse, manipulation and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women for more than two decades.
In February, he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims, including three that prosecutors say were underage girls. The charges range from 1998 to 2010. Kelly pleaded not guilty.
He posted bail of $ 100,000 and left the Cook County jail in Chicago less than three days after being arrested. He was arrested and jailed again in March for not paying his ex-wife the child support of $ 161,000.
At the end of May, a grand jury indicted him on 11 counts related to one of the four accusers, including aggravated criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony; and criminal sexual assault, a class 1 felony.
Under Illinois law, a person convicted of Class X felonies can receive up to 30 years in prison.
