Prosecutors in the R. Kelly cases revealed some of the evidence they have to prove R. Kelly took underage women across state lines for sexual purposes.
According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, federal prosecutors in New York have more than a dozen flight records, birth certificates for a number of women, hotel receipts, bank records, medical records and various other business documents. They also have Uber records, photos and text messages.
One of the hotel receipts is for the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. Another is for the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut and the Planet Hollywood resort in Vegas.
The end game for prosecutors is to prove R. Kelly violated the Mann Act, which makes it a crime for people to transport people across state lines for illicit sexual purposes.
Kelly is facing criminal charges in multiple jurisdictions — New York federal court, Illinois federal court, Illinois state court and Minnesota state court.
The singer is currently being held in an Illinois jail cell. As we reported, he’s in talks with famed criminal defense lawyer Tom Mesereau to rep him.
