R&B star R Kelly was arrested on 01/22/03 in Polk County Florida for 12 counts of Child pornography.
In June of 2002, Polk county police executed a search warrant at Kelly's residents in Florida and confiscated digital photography equipment with 12 images depicting sex with a minor and one other unidentified woman on the images. Working with Chicago police and investigating the incident carefully, Florida Law Enforcent finally took Kelly into custody on January 22, 2003.
Kelly's posted bond and is free and said that he went on to film a new video for his recently released new studio CD called "Ignition". Some scrutiny about radio stations playing his music has been voiced but most radio executives say that he has not been "Proven Guilty".
Kelly's attorney claims that Polk County Florida is piling charges to the Chicago pending allegations for small town publicity, "R. Kelly is innocent".
