R&B Popular singer, R.Kelly has gotten a decline yet again to be allowed to leave the jail due to the global pandemic and for him not to contract the dreaded Coronavirus in the jail but this request have gotten a thumbs down as the Judge in charge of his case has refused him the leave request.
According to the judge sayings, “R.Kelly is a ‘danger to the community’ and a ‘flight risk’ .
This is the third time over the series of times R.Kelly’s attempts to leave jail on ‘health conditions’ is being turned down and dismissed by the court as he is being held in prison over child sex abuse allegations and molestation, transmission of STDS and kidnapping.
In his motion for bail, which was filed earlier the month of May, the singer has complained that he was diabetic and overweight and therefore more susceptible to Coronavirus complications, and complained that conditions in his prison had become filthy, and it was only a matter of time before he caught the virus.
However, Judge Donnelly, detailing the dismissal of Kelly’s application, said Kelly’s crimes involve the sexual abuse of minors that stretched for almost 25 years, and allegations like those do not merit bail.
The judge who spoke that although Kelly has insisted that if set free, he’d return to Illinois to stand trial like he did in his 2008 over his child porn trial, the grand jury found out that he had probably done some bribing as she couldn’t go further with her witness testimony over his alleged behavior. Neveetheless, while the judge stressed the need R Kelly should be held up in the prison said;
”The defendant is charged in Illinois and New York with extraordinarily serious crimes, for which he faces a long prison term if convicted,” Judge Donnelly wrote in her decision
“That prospect makes him a flight risk. The nature of the charges—which include crimes against minor victims, threats against potential witnesses and paying bribes to keep witnesses from cooperating—make him a danger to the community, including that he could attempt to tamper with prospective witnesses.”
