ATLANTA (FOX 5 ATLANTA) - Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter R. Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse, after decades of accusations that the R&B star sexually abused underage girls and women.
Atlanta area attorney Gerald Griggs represents Jonjelyn and Timothy Savage in Atlanta. They claim that R. Kelly is holding their daughter Jocelyn Savage against her will. However, Jocelyn Savage has refuted those reports in media interviews. Griggs responded to Friday's indictment from a Cook County, Illinois grand jury with the following statement:
“More than two years ago when the Savage family first approached me about this case, I quickly recognized that multiple crimes were committed. I’ve repeatedly asked law enforcement to investigate this case and provided evidence directly linked to Robert Kelly. Today, a Grand Jury found the evidence we provided was sufficient for trial. We knew eventually that this day would come. We are hopeful now that with an indictment and the arrest of Mr. Kelly that Joycelyn Savage will soon be reunited with her family.”
