Singer R. Kelly Seeks Release From Prison
LAWYERS FILE A MOTION ASKING FOR R. KELLY TO BE RELEASED BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS
(CNN) – R. Kelly’s lawyers are trying to get the disgraced singer released from prison; citing coronavirus concerns.
The attorneys filed a motion with the court, asking for Kelly to be released on bond.
They argue Kelly is of the age to be “most-at-risk for contracting COVID-19.”
They believe instead of being behind bars, he should be placed on house arrest and electronically monitored.
Kelly is currently in a Chicago correctional facility, waiting to go on trial for sexual abuse charges.
