CHICAGO – The Chicago judge on Saturday gave an opportunity to get free of R & B, R. Kelly, free when he was waiting for a trial on charges that he has misused four people.
County Judge Sir John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr made a $ 1 million bond to the singer. Lyke called the allegations against Kelly to "intervene" that the sum amounted to $ 250,000 for each of the four people responsible for sexual abuse. The bond requires the native Chicago to post $ 100,000 before its release.
Lyke is the same judge who presided over the Jussie Smollett, actor "Empire" bond hearing, earlier this week. Kelly banned from having contact with anyone under the age of 18.

During a 17-minute Saturday hearing, prosecutors set their case against Kelly, as he stood up with the judge with tired arms behind his back. At times his head was shaken in disagreement and once ceased to cling something to his lawyer, who was patio Kelly on the shoulder.
Kelly's alleged victims' relatives were also in court.
Attorney Kelly, Steve Greenberg told the judge, "Contrary to the song, Mr Kelly does not like flying," in reference to the popular song of the Grammy award winner "I believe I can fly."
The singer, full name of Robert Kelly, was accused of Friday with 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse involving at least three underage victims between 1998 and 2010. Each of the accounts has a maximum of seven years in prison. The charges follow decades of rumors and allegations that the music star abuses women and underage women.
Greenberg denied allegations that Kelly had sexually abused, saying to reporters: "It's a rock star. It does not have to have an incredible sex."

Kelly has rejected all allegations of sexual misconduct.
On Friday, Greenberg told reporters that he believed that "all the women lie".
"Mr. Kelly is strong, he has a lot of support and will be realized on all these payments – one by one if he has to be."
DNA Kelly was found in semen on one of the accuser's shirts, and found semen found on one cost by another for DNA tests, State Attorney of Cook County Kim Foxx said.
Kelly met with one of the accusers when she was celebrating her 16th birthday party at a restaurant and another when she signed a shot during her 2008 trial on children's pornography prices, says Foxx.
Prosecutors said they had a video of another accused who showed that R. Kelly had sex with her when she was 14 years old.
A fourth prosecutor told prosecutors that she thought she was tired of R. Kelly's hair, but that she was trying to force her to give her orally. The girl, who was 24 at the time, was able to pull off, but Kelly said on her head and thrown in her face, says Foxx.

Kelly is one of the most popular recording artists at all times.
