Two years ago, R. Kelly was arrested by federal agent for sex crimes. He faces 22 charges including child porn, child sexual exploitation, kidnapping and racketeering.

He’s spent two years in jail awaiting trial. On Thursday, Kells appeared for the first time before Judge Ann Donnelly in New York City. She set August 18th as the start of his court case.

It could have started sooner, but his legal team needs these five weeks to prep. They recently joined R. Kelly’s case after the previous lawyers abandoned ship. (New York Post)
