R. Kelly’s ongoing legal woes have now dragged in a fan. Christopher Gunn was taken into custody in late June after allegedly threatening prosecutors in Kelly’s sex abuse case. He is facing up to five years in prison if he is convicted.

Gunn recently had an appearance in court. The R. Kelly fan has pleaded not guilty to the charge. His initial threat came via a YouTube video.

Christopher Gunn claimed in the video that he would “storm” the US District Attorney’s office in New York. He said that if Kelly went down, “everybody’s going down.” The threat was serious and specific in nature.

According to Billboard, he has entered a plea of not guilty. Gunn was present for at least one of R. Kelly’s court dates in the past. Prosecutors believe that shows both means and motive to harm them.

The first hearing in the case is scheduled for Thursday, July 28. U.S. Magistrate Judge Sanket J. Bulsara accepted the guilty plea. Now, Gunn will have to make his case before the court.

R. Kelly was found guilty on all counts during his federal trial. He has been sentenced to 30 years behind bars. If things don’t go well for Christopher Gunn, he could soon be joining him.
