R. Kelly Is Using Medical Reasons To Persuade Getting A Bail
Putting forward his alleged medical issues and not being able to see both his girlfriends, R Kelly is trying to persuade the court to grant him bail.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the alleged child sex predator is pleading with a judge to grant him bond.
The singer has been arguing for his release for months and has had no luck. His lawyers are now trying new arguments.
In newly filed documents, Kelly’s lawyer argues the singer is not a flight risk. They accuse prosecutors of failing to provide evidence to back up this claim.
The lawyer takes issue with prosecutors not providing the name of the alleged victims.
His lawyer states, “Mr. Kelly possesses almost no financial resources, and no evidence was presented to the Court to the contrary. Indeed, there is nothing in the record to support such an inference. Likewise, Mr. Kelly is not a frequent international traveler. His passport is presently in the custody of authorities in Cook County, Illinois in connection with Illinois State court proceedings. That passport was issued approximately eight years ago and does not contain a single stamp for travel.”
