Last week, R. Kelly’s lawyers tried to get him out of jail, claiming that he is at risk of catching Covid-19. However, the judge denied his request!
According to the latest reports, the singer is still considered a flight risk.
“Kelly is currently in custody because of the risks that he will flee or attempt to obstruct, threaten or intimidate prospective witnesses. The defendant has not explained how those risks have changed,” the judge claimed.
Even more, it looks like there aren’t any Covid-19 cases at MCC in Chicago, where R. Kelly is locked, adding that the Bureau of Prisons is doing their best to combat the spread of the virus in their facilities, like restricting social visits and suspending any inmate facility transfers.
