Most, if not all of the conduct alleged, is decades old."

He continued, "Mr. Kelly was aware of the investigations and the charges were not a surprise. He had already assembled a team of outstanding federal litigators. He and his lawyers look forward to his day in court, to the truth coming out and to his vindication from what has been an unprecedented assault by others for their own personal gain. Most importantly he looks forward to being able to continue to making wonderful music and perform for his legions of fans that believe in him. A bail hearing will be held early next week, at which time Mr. Kelly hopes to be released from custody."
