According to recent information, it might be possible for R. Kelly to taste life outside of a jail again, as it was reported that the disgraced R&B mogul might be considered for release on bail.
Even though Kelly’s first motion for bail hearing was denied in 2019, the second attempt turned out to be successful, when Judge Harry D. Leinenweber recently approved the motion that was filed by the singer’s attorney, Steven Greenberg.
Greenberg insisted that if Kelly was set free, there was not any chance of him ever hiding away from justice, as his enormous fame prevented him from escaping the public eye. Besides, Kelly’s lawyer reminded the court of his client’s exemplary behavior in the past.
As was stated by the famous musician’s legal defense team, the defendant deserved to be released from jail because he never missed a single court date during the course of his previous case that spanned from 2002 until 2008.
In case the “I Believe I Can Fly” performer’s wish is granted, and he is released on bail, he most likely will still be confined under house arrest with electronic monitoring.
Greenberg also claimed that if his client gets out of jail, Kelly would refrain from any communication with underage girls and limit his usage of the most popular social media platforms.
The disgraced singer’s hearing is scheduled to take place on March 5, but he was slapped with a new indictment in Chicago federal court, so things might still be complicated for him.
A comment read: “In the words of Donna Summer & Barbara Streisand “Goodbye goodbye mista’ no more tears enough is enough.”
One person had this to say: “It isn’t just r Kelly. Everyone who turned a blind eye. who was and still are in his circle.. everyone who was silenced by threats and payoffs.. there is no way in hell that he got away with all that for so long without some help from his friends.”
This social media user wrote: “I’m sure his fans are still in denial. But the truth shall set all y’all free when victims get their justice. ⚖️”
Kelly’s been behind bars since July 2019, when he was taken into custody on multiple charges of pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.
Some are wondering how will his girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage And Azriel Clary, deal with this bail situation.
