R. Kelly Brooklyn Sex-Trafficking Trial Set For August!
Kellz is back in the news after the pandemic has delayed his trial and what will become of him. The R&B superstar R. Kelly’s sex-trafficking and racketeering trial is expected to go forward in August. Read on since R. Kelly Sex-Trafficking Trial has a date set…
CelebnMusic247.com reports that a federal judge said Thursday the long-delayed R. Kelly sex-trafficking trial proceeding will begin late summer.
It seems they are waiting on more states to open up and more people are vaccinated before moving forward with the R. Kelly sex-trafficking trial.
Kelly has been locked behind bars since the pandemic since his manager has been unsuccessful multiple times to get him out of prison.
According to PageSix:
Assistant US Attorney Elizabeth Geddes told US District Judge Ann Donnelly during a virtual hearing that prosecutors would, “begin that process of moving [Kelly] to Brooklyn from Chicago for trial.”
The “I Believe I Can Fly” crooner is locked up in Chicago jail on a separate federal indictment that includes charges of child pornography, sexual exploitation of children, and conspiracy to defraud the US government. Once the Brooklyn case wraps up, the three-time Grammy award winner — whose given name is Robert Sylvester Kelly — is scheduled to be tried in the Windy City.
The judge also assured the parties Thursday that other trials were underway in the Eastern District of New York and appropriate safety measures are in place.
It’s going to be normal as that is defined in these unusual times. It may be that communication is through headsets, but it’s been working in other trials so I’m not too concerned about that.
We bet R. Kelly will just be happy to be out of his prison cell.
