  • Prosecutors in Illinois have filed 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against R&B musician R. Kelly, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said Friday at a news conference. Foxx said the charges were related to incidents alleged to have occurred between 1998 and 2010 with four separate victims. >> Read more trending news Update 9:20 p.m. EST Feb. 22: R. Kelly turned himself in to Chicago police after being charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. The 52-year-old singer, whose real name is Robert Kelly, arrived at the precinct in a van about 8:15 p.m. Friday. If taken into custody, he is expected to be held overnight and appear Saturday in bond court. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg said he maintains his innocence and looks forward to being acquitted at trial. Update 6:30 p.m. EST Feb. 22: R. Kelly’s attorney said the singer is “shell-shocked” by the aggravated sexual abuse indictment against him and plans to turn himself in to authorities Friday night. Steve Greenberg told The Associated Press that his client is “extraordinarily disappointed and depressed” by the 10 counts Chicago prosecutors filed against him. Update 3:15 p.m. EST Feb. 22: Authorities held a brief news conference Friday to announce the charges against Kelly. Foxx said the charges brought against Kelly involve four victims, three of which were under the age of 17 at the time of the alleged sexual abuse. The alleged sexual abuse took place between 1998 and 2010, she said. The charges are class 2 felonies which carry maximum sentences of seven years per charge, Foxx said. She added that they were “also probationable.” “We anticipate that Mr. Kelly will appear in bond court tomorrow afternoon,” Foxx said. Update 2:50 p.m. EST Feb. 22: The Chicago Tribune reported that the charges against Kelly involve four victims, at least three of which are underage. The incidents were alleged to have occurred between 1998 and 2010 with minors between the ages of 13 and 16, according to the Tribune. A judge on Friday approved of a no-bail arrest warrant for Kelly, the Sun-Times reported. Authorities are expected to provide more information on the case at a news conference Friday afternoon. Original report: Tandra Simonton, spokeswoman for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, confirmed to The Associated Press that charges had been filed against the 52-year-old Grammy winner but declined to say the specific number. Media reports said there were 10 counts, all involving underage victims. >> New sex tape allegedly shows R. Kelly having sex with underage girl, according to reports The charges are felonies that carry maximum sentences of seven years each, if Kelly is convicted, WGN-TV reported. Kelly, one of the top-selling recording artists of all time, has several times over the years been accused of sexual misconduct, allegations that he’s consistently denied. Jurors acquitted Kelly of child pornography charges at a 2008 trial. Those charges stemmed from a video prosecutors alleged showed of Kelly having sex with a girl as young as 13. >> Report: R. Kelly being investigated by Atlanta-area DA after docuseries abuse allegations The latest charges were filed nearly two weeks after a man gave authorities new footage that purportedly showed Kelly engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl. The man's attorney, Michael Avenatti, told CNN last week that the man was a whistleblower. Avenatti said his client “worked for and has known R. Kelly for decades and he met the girl on a number of occasions.” On Friday, Avenatti seemed to announce the charges against Kelly with a two word tweet: “It’s over.” >> Who is R. Kelly? 7 things to know  “After 25 years of serial sexual abuse and assault of underage girls, the day of reckoning for R. Kelly has arrived,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet. Avenatti said he will provide more information about the case at a press conference Friday afternoon. Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx is also expected to hold a news conference Friday. The Associated Press contributed to this report. Check back for updates to this developing story.
  • The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is searching for a murder suspect-- and they need your help. If you see 19-year-old Trevon Wiley, you're urged to contact JSO right away at (904) 630-0500. We're told you should not approach Wiley, as he is considered to be armed and dangerous.  Police tell us he's wanted in connection to the February 16th murder of Ziykye Barnhill, also 19-years-old, on Matthew Street. Another person was shot during that incident, but survived.
  • It will likely make your drive through Jacksonville’s Southside a little smoother when it’s done— the Florida Department of Transportation is upgrading the traffic signals along Beach Boulevard from Parental Home Road to Cortez Road starting next week.  FDOT says among the upgrades are new mast-arms and signals along Beach Boulevard, at Parental Home Road, Foster Drive, Grove Park Boulevard, Barkley Road, Peach Drive, Forest Boulevard, Anniston Road, DeSalvo Road and Cortez Road.  Roadway lighting, sidewalk repairs, new highway signage and an additional right turn lane from Beach Boulevard eastbound to Parental Home Road are also included in the $3.8 million improvement project, according to FDOT.  FDOT says drivers can expect single lane closures periodically throughout the week between 8 pm and 6:30 am.  FDOT says pedestrian detours will be in place in case of any sidewalk closures, and JTA bus stops may be temporarily relocated during construction.  According to FDOT, Florida Safety Contractors, Inc. is expected to finish this project early next year. 
  • The Clay County Sheriff's Office is hosting a series of events, as it works to raise money to send their traffic section and honor guard to DC in May, as one of their own deputy's names will be added to the police memorial wall.  The first event is called 'Shootin' with the Sheriffs.'  Chris Padgett, the Public Information Officer with CCSO, says the February 25th event will essentially be a clay-shoot competition featuring Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels and other law enforcement members and the community.  If you're interested in taking part, four-man teams cost $500, while individual will pay $125. With the fee comes a light breakfast, clay shells, a golf cart, and lunch. The Saltwaters Shooting Club which is hosting the event will have guns for rent and additional ammo available.  For full event details and how to sign up, click HERE.  The sheriff's office plans to hold another event Saturday, March 23rd. That will be the first annual 'Memorial Ride for the Fallen', sponsored by Adamec Harley-Davidson of Orange Park. Registration will be 8:30 AM that same day.  Padgett says it will be a police escorted ride starting from Adamec Harley-Davidson located at 1520 Wells Road, with kickstands going up at 10:00 AM.  Riders are $25, passengers are $10, while VIP spots are $100. With that, all riders will get lunch.  Proceeds from these events will allow the sheriff's office to honor Deputy Ben Zirbel during the upcoming National Police Memorial Week in DC. Zirbel was involved in a traffic crash on Blanding Boulevard, while he was on duty.  'The National Police Memorial Week is a big deal for law enforcement, but this year it hits closer for home for the Clay County Sheriff's Office and our community, because of Ben's death,' says Padgett.  The sheriff's office is hoping to raise around $30,000, with money going toward hotel rooms, food, travel costs, and things that accumulate with going to DC for a week.  We're told a few other fundraising events are also in the works, with details to come.  If you're unable to attend any of the events, you can still help out. The sheriff's office asks that you contact the Clay FOP at ClayFOP104.org.
  • One man is dead and multiple people have been taken in for questioning, following a shooting on the Southside. JSO was called to Crownwood Drive around 1PM Friday, where they found a man dead of a gunshot. The victim’s identity is not yet being released, but he is an adult man, according to police. Multiple people have been taken to be interviewed, and JSO says they believe one of those individuals is their suspect. This appears to be a domestic incident, according to the preliminary investigation, although JSO is still working to determine the relationship between the suspect and victim and what led up to the shooting.
