R. Kelly’s protection lawyer says they may enchantment his verdict after discovered responsible of extortion
It took a long time in the R. Kelly extortion process. After delays due to COVID-19, the six week trial has ended and R. Kelly has been found guilty. After two days of deliberation, a jury of seven men and five women convicted him on all nine counts, including extortion and sex trafficking, in federal court in Brooklyn.
While the verdict has been final, it doesn’t look like his legal department will accept the result. Following the verdict, R. Kelly’s defense attorney Devereaux Cannick made a statement outside the courtroom. “Of course Mr. Kelly is disappointed. He did not expect this verdict because based on the evidence, why should he anticipate this verdict, “Devereaux told Now This News.
When he spoke up, he claimed that the government had “picked” evidence to back up their story. He continued, “You did not see what we saw in relation to the discovery. You haven’t seen all the inconsistencies. We said in our summary that the government selected their version that they thought would support the continuation of the narrative. “
Before he finished with the press, Deveraux let it be known that the fight was not over. He said he would appeal the guilty verdict before leaving reporters. Deveraux wasn’t the only one outside of the Brooklyn Federal Courthouse. A group of female supporters were also outside, expressing their contempt for the verdict, which allegedly carries a long sentence.
According to The NY Times, R. Kelly will be behind bars for the rest of his life. However, his actual conviction hearing is scheduled for May 4, 2022. Roommate, we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available!
