R. Kelly now faces a federal racketeering charge for allegedly conducting a criminal "enterprise" to promote his music and "recruit women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity", according to a recent request for a federal court filing in Brooklyn.

This racket charge is just one of the many aspects that Kelly will have to face in the federal courts of Brooklyn and Chicago after his arrest at the end of Thursday. Brooklyn federal prosecutors hit Kelly with a charge of five counts that, in addition to the racket, included four counts of the Mann Act related to his alleged "interstate transport of a victim in New York to engage in illegal sexual activities, and his her exposure to a contagious venereal disease unbeknownst to her. "(The Mann Act is basically a law that prohibits the transfer of people through state lines for illegal sexual activities).
