R. Kelly Still Incarcerated. Lawyer Says R&B Singer Couldn’t Come Up With Bail Needed For Release

R. Kelly failed to come up with the $100,000 bail needed to secure his freedom before the trial, forcing the alleged abuser to spend a second night in jail, according to his lawyer. 

On Friday evening, Kelly turned himself into police after he had been charged with 10 counts of felony criminal sexual abuse against four women, three of which were minors.

When Robert arrived at the Leighton Criminal Court building Saturday afternoon,  Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. called the allegations against the singer "disturbing" and set his bond to $1 million—$250,000 for each of the four indictments. 

Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, said that the singer's finances were

"a mess."

However, he claimed that R Kelly will likely have the funds needed to post bail later today, a day before his next scheduled court appearance.

"We are very happy with the bond that was set,"

Greenberg said.

"Right now he is presumed innocent."
