R. Kelly has been in jail for 17 months and his legal team worked hard to get a judge to release him. Kellz ‘has been waiting for the trial and unfortunately the date has been postponed several times due to the pandemic and it looks like he will finally face a judge in 2021.
A journalist covering the R. Kelly case has reported that Judge Leinenweber has set a trial date for R. Kelly and his co-defendants for September 13, 2021.
“Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, sounds skeptical about what’s going on, but agrees to fix the date until it’s set in stone,” said Jason Meisner.
As we previously reported, R. Kelly’s legal team tried virtually everything to get him released pending trial, but nothing has worked so far. His team tried to play the COVID card that the judge closed on the case and even tried to release him after he was attacked in his cell in August.
One of R. Kelly’s attorneys, Nicole Blank Becker, exclusively told the Chicago Sun Times that he lived in fear and was “petrified and paranoid” after the attack. She went on to say that he “cannot sleep and is now afraid to leave his prison cell during the two hours he is allowed to leave each day. His insomnia is serious. “
“Robert is scared for his life … he’s been scared every day since he was beaten in his prison cell by his fellow MCC inmate Jeremiah Shane Farmer a month ago,” Becker said.
From now on, Kellz will remain behind bars until his set negotiation date.
