  • A judge in Illinois has rejected Grammy-award winning singer R Kelly's request to leave jail due to coronavirus fears, saying that he poses a flight risk and a "danger to the community, especially prospective witnesses".

    The accused sex offender is awaiting trial in Chicago for child pornography and other charges.

    A lawyer for Kelly had argued that forcing him to remain in jail is "tantamount to making [him] drink poison".

    Prison reform advocates say jails are especially vulnerable to Covid-19, due to the impossibility of enforcing social distancing measures, as well as hygiene problems.
    He tried though.

    • R. Kelly is dragging his ex-Aaliyah into his new plea to get out of prison.

      According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly is back in court attempting to be released from prison on bond. In the past couple of months, Kelly has made numerous arguments for his release, all of which have been shut down.

      In newly filed documents, the disgraced singer wanted to make sure the judge knew he wasn’t planning on intimidating any witnesses or obstructing justice if allowed out. In his criminal indictment, prosecutors have listed six victims they accuse Kelly of abusing over the years. Kelly says he is not a risk to obstruct justice because one of the victims is dead, who he doesn’t name but it is Aaliyah.

      • ^So he admits she was a victim? That doesn't exactly put him in a better light.

          He doesn't. At this stage, the victims are "alleged victims". He's merely stating that one of the alleged victims is already dead (how that helps his point of there being no risk of obstruction of justice is beyond me, but the US system is weird like that).

            • Feds ask to bring up new sickening accusations against R. Kelly at trial

              Federal prosecutors in New York on Friday detailed a string of new accusations of sexual assault and bribery against R. Kelly going back 30 years, including how the disgraced R&B singer allegedly abused a teenage boy in 2006.

              In a lengthy court filing, the prosecutors asked a judge for permission to admit what they said was evidence of the sickening allegations — for which Kelly has not been charged — at his upcoming sex-trafficking trial in Brooklyn.

              The uncharged acts are “directly relevant to and inextricably intertwined with the evidence of the charged crimes,” the prosecutors argued in the motion.

              The filing alleges that in 2006, Kelly sexually abused a 17-year-old boy, named only as John Doe #1, after meeting him at a McDonalds in Chicago and asking “what he was willing to do to succeed in the music business.”

              • Wow this is a news avenue into this. I can’t understand how his behaviour was accepted for so many years, I mean we all knew something was wrong back in 2002 or something (actually even further back everybody knew about him and Aaliyah in the mid 90s) and yet nothing was ever done about him.

                  • Trial begins today. Apparently he's now worth "negative two million" dollars.

                    • R. Kelly aide says he paid bribe for singer to marry Aaliyah

                      A former tour manager for US R&B singer R. Kelly has testified that he bribed a government worker in 1994 to obtain a fake ID for then 15-year-old Aaliyah - so the singers could marry.

                      Demetrius Smith said he paid $500 (£367) for an ID used by Mr Kelly, then 27, to wed Aaliyah, who was under age.

                      Mr Smith was giving evidence after he was granted immunity from prosecution.

                      Mr Kelly is on trial accused of sexual abuse, racketeering and bribery. He has denied the charges.

                      Speaking at the singer's trial on Friday in Brooklyn, New York, Mr Smith said the decision to obtain the document was made by Mr Kelly's "associates" after Aaliyah had said she was pregnant.

                      • So I read R. Kelly married Aaliyah because she was pregnant at the time. What happened? Did she have a miscarriage?
