According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly is now being charged for bribing an Illinois state official. Prosecutors say the then 27-year-old singer obtained the ID for 15-year-old Aaliyah the day before they illegally got married.
They forged the marriage certificate to say Aaliyah was 18.
The document states “On or about August 30, 1994, within the Northern District of Illinois, the defendant ROBERT SYL VESTER KELLY , together with others, did knowingly and intentionally cause another individual to promise and tender to a public officer and public employee property, to wit: Unites States currency, that such public officer and public employee was not authorized by law to accept, with the intent to influence the performance of an act related to the employment and function of a public officer and public employee, to wit: the creation of a fraudulent identification document for Jane Doe #1.”
Prosecutors do not hold back in the new documents. They write, “the defendant ROBERT SYLVESTER KELLY was the leader of the Enterprise.”
They accuse him of, “Committing, attempting and aiding and abetting the commission of crimes, conspiring to commit crimes, including but not limited to engaging in sexual activity with girls under 18 years old, engaging in and facilitating sexual activity without disclosing a sexually transmitted disease KELLY had contracted, producing child pornography, bribery and extortion.”
