While R. Kelly's federal indictment and subsequent arrest have made front page news, an interesting element of this new indictment that hasn't gotten much attention is that the feds are casting a wider net to include those who may have aided and abetted Kelly's actions. According to the Chicago Tribune, R. Kelly's former manager Derrel McDavid and former employee Milton "June" Brown, were both charged in this indictment.
The indictment claims that Kelly paid both McDavid and Milton to cover up his sexual transgressions. Kelly reportedly made the two men force his victims into taking lie-detector tests in order to prove that they've handed over all sex tapes in their possession. Kelly allegedly began filming his sexual encounters with minors as early as 1998, and upon realizing that some tapes were missing from his "collection" the R&B singer implored McDavid and Brown to locate and retrieve the tapes which led to the men paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to various people in the process.
