Warrant Entered for

R. Kelly's Arrest

12/19/2007 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


ArrestTMZ has confirmed that a judge entered a bench warrant for singer R. Kelly -- because he did not show for a court hearing today in Chicago.

We're told Kelly's tour bus was delayed in Utah, so he was a no show. The judge in his child pornography case entered the warrant but won't enforce it just yet. But if R. Kelly doesn't show up tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM, the judge will tell the fuzz to arrest his butt.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cook County prosecutors pressed the judge, noting he had already shown considerable leeway in letting Kelly travel outside Illinois. "This is just an abuse of the process. It's disrespectful of your honor," said Assistant State's Attorney Shauna Bolicker.

Kelly has been charged with child pornography, in a widely reported case in which he allegedly videotaped a sexual encounter with a teenage girl. R. pleaded not guilty in the mess -- which has been going on since 2002.

Kelly's lawyer said singer was "detained because of some snow." The judge said a trial date will be set on Thursday. Yeah, right.

All you idiots who say leave the brother alone are the same who wanted to see Michael Jackson in jail after his fourth time being accused of child molestation.

mstkelly ----------- First of all , R. Kelly is not a man. He is a vulture, who preys on young girls. He has a sexual perversion.that makes him an abherrant,............You weren't in that room, you do not know this girl, her life or her parents..whatever her past present or future.....you have no intimate knowledge. You have a big mouth & a small brain. Your judgement...extremely poor. You are a silly person ......bereft of common sense...immature, a fan, swayed to the extreme by a "celebrity"........so that you have no insight, & have lost any sense of reality.You have a child.......you have said so. What a poor reflection of a parent you are..............I have read your posts. You are crude vulgar & ignorant............... you are in no position to offer moral judgement.......you condone R.Kelly.You support him.you love him..no matter what. He is a pedophile , a child molester...hee loves child pornography, carries child porn pictures.......................You have a young daughter.....You.!.................are disgusting.

This idiot needs to be locked up. The bus was late. Considering that he is rich enough to lease a helicopter, that is a piss-poor excuse. But then, he is a piss-poor excuse.

u know so many people have gone to jail for so much less. This man should have been locked up a long time ago. he is a pedifile, how many more little girls does he have to violate before something is done. what kind of message does it send when R Kelly can do whatever he wants to underage girls all because he can sing. big deal he's still a sick person, how do u plead not guilty when they have u on tape. IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

He's Boring now    

He gonna love the confines of Cook County Jail. Them bros just waiting to do to him what he did to that girl in the anus in the video. Maybe he'll like being a catcher instead of a pitcher for now on, should he not make that 9:00 a.m. court call tommorrow.

This aint LA County here. Its Cook County, and Chicago could care less about a persons standing as a "Star". Equal justice for all. Even for a homie like R Kelly who is from here.
