Subject: R. Kelly

Charges: RnB singer R. Kelly (real name Robert Kelly) was arrested in June 2002 in Florida and charged with 21 counts of child pornography and illegally engaging in sexual acts with a minor. The then-33-year-old Kelly allegedly had sex with an underage girl as shown in a 1997 videotape sent to the Chicago Sun Times early in 2002.

After closer inspection to the sex tape found that there was no actual sexual intercourse involved, the charges were eventually lowered to soliciting a minor for child pornography, seven counts of videotaping the acts, and seven counts of producing child pornography.

Date: Mugshot taken on June 5, 2002

Verdict: In June 2008, the busted singer was acquitted of all charges, ending a six-year ordeal for the RnB superstar.
