Ave­natti claims he has ev­i­dence against R. Kelly

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

At­tor­ney Michael Ave­natti said Thurs­day he has given Chicago pros­e­cu­tors new video ev­i­dence of R&B star R. Kelly hav­ing sex with an un­der­age girl.

Ave­natti said the video isn’t the same ev­i­dence used in Kelly’s 2008 trial, when he was ac­quit­ted on child pornog­ra­phy charges. CNN re­ported the nearly 45-minute VHS tape shows a man ap­pear­ing to be Kelly per­form­ing sex acts with a girl who refers to her body parts as 14 years old.

Tan­dra Si­mon­ton, spokes­woman for Cook County State’s At­tor­ney Kim Foxx, wouldn’t con­firm or deny the of­fice is in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
