R. Kelly makes first court appearance, bond set at $1 million

A judge in Chicago has set R. Kelly's bond at $1 million as the singer faces 10 counts of felony criminal sexual abuse.
Kelly will have to pay $100,000 to be released, according to reports from the courthouse. He will need to surrender his passport and be barred from talking with the victims in the case. Kelly is also not allowed to associate with minors while his case is pending. R. Kelly stands accused of 10 counts abuse with four alleged victims. Three of the four accusers were between the ages of 13-16 when they say the crimes occurred. Kelly turned himself in to Chicago police on Friday. If convicted, he could spend up to 70 years in prison. Chicago Tribune reporter Jason Meisner reported via Twitter that prosecutors shared that they had preliminary DNA matches to Kelly from one of the victims.
