For the third time singer R.Kelly’s attempts to leave jail due to the possibility of him contracting Covid-19 but he made efforts to no avail.
A judge has denied R.Kelly’s request to leave jail, he said R Kelly is a ‘danger to the community’ and a ‘flight risk’.
Recently Kelly 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.
His two previous attempts to leave jail have been dismissed as the court felt his ‘Health’ reasons were not genuine.
While Judge Donnelly was dismissing Kelly’s application, he said Kelly’s crimes involve the sexual abuse of minors that stretched for almost 25 years, and allegations like those do not merit bail.
Kelly has insisted that if set free, he will return to Illinois to stand trial as he did in his 2008 but the grand jury found probable cause that he bribed witnesses in that case, and she doesn’t want a repeat of that alleged behavior.
