R. Kelly’s trial for his alleged sexual misconduct offenses has been scheduled for April 27, 2020, according to recent reports.
It will take a while before Kelly is able to appear in court and plead his case, but that is nothing out of the ordinary for a case as significant as this one in the legal world.
On the other hand, Kelly’s specific case has been full of various surprise developments that have continuously cast doubt on its future outcome, further adding to the controversial nature of the situation.
The legendary singer is facing charges for sexual misconduct against minors, and he had also allegedly spent a lot of money in attempts to re-buy tapes depicting some of his vulgar encounters.
All of this remains to be discussed at length in court, and the Chicago native has maintained a firm position on the situation in the meantime.
Kelly also recently made the surprising request to be taken out of solitary confinement.
His attorney claimed that his client was being held in unreasonable conditions and that the R&B legend did not deserve to be isolated from the rest of the world in this manner.
After his request was granted, Kelly was reportedly doing quite well in general population and has not faced any issues with other inmates as some suspected he would.
It remains to be seen if his situation will be the same after a potential prison transfer in his near future, however.
One person had this reaction to the news: “All of you thought only Angels could sing 🤔 Monsters can too 💯 stop defending this guy y’all. Gaining the trust of parents for musical projects then secretly marrying their 15-year-old daughter 🤔 I’m a fan of the black man, but what he did was wrong and are silly for comparing him to #HughHefner. he has been screaming out for help for years #piedPiper.”
Another supporter revealed: “Free r Kelly I don’t care what them girls says about you they wrong for telling lies if it weren’t for them you wouldn’t be in jail right now 💔.”
A fan explained: “What is wrong with you, Robert. When somebody says r. Kelly. I remember the songs woman threats. You are not alone. Fiesta. Why Robert why.”
A follower explained: “I don’t wanna hear anything about “oh they were young and impressionable, so they were victims” Nah nah, they knew what they were doing. They heard about him in the news. R Kelly is In the wrong, but those girls weren’t raped. They consented.”
Experts believe that Kelly could beat this case.
