Judges to decide on bond hearings for R. Kelly indictments

R. Kelly arrested on federal sex trafficking charges in Chicago

The 13-count federal indictment against the R&B singer includes child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice charges; Mike Tobin reports from Chicago.

Federal judges will decide how to proceed with bond hearings in two separate federal indictments against R. Kelly.

The 52-year-old singer was arrested Thursday night while walking his dog on a 13-count indictment that includes sex crimes and obstruction of justice. A New York federal indictment was also unsealed Friday that charges him with racketeering and sex-related crimes.
