R. Kelly Associate Pleads Guilty to Witness Tampering

R&B singer songwriter R. Kelly is currently facing trial in three states for sex trafficking and racketeering [click here here and here if you missed that]. 

Now one of his associates just pleaded guilty to tampering with witnesses....

This week Richard Arline Jr pleaded guilty in Brooklyn Federal court to offering $500,000 to a victim identified only as 'Jane Doe' for her silence in Kellz upcoming case. 

Arline made it clear in a phone call made in May of last year that Kelly was aware of the offer, but did not know the victim was cooperating with the Feds who were recording the call. 

Arline is facing up to 15 years at sentencing.
