In 2002, tapes were found that displayed the 40-year-old singer having sex with a female who looked no older than 13. Kelly was then arrested and charged with 21 counts of child pornography.

Kelly who pleaded not guilty, attended the Cook County Criminal Courthouse two days ago with his lawyer to discuss a questionnaire of over 135 questions that will be thrown out to him for answers. If Mr. Kelly is found guilty he could face up to 15 years behind bars.
