The disgraced singer’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg, filed a motion Thursday in which he refers to coronavirus spreading around the Earth, along with the health dangers he believes he’s facing while composed in Chicago MCC. “No matter what steps they choose the sanitation is going to be substandard, the chance of an inner pandemic in the MCC is fantastic.”
Kelly states social-distancing is near impossible from the jail, soap is only available to offenders that can afford to get it in the commissary — and do not mention hand sanitizer. He asserts there’s just ONE large bottle on the visiting floor… but it is labeled,”STAFF ONLY.”
He states forcing anyone to stay under these conditions is”tantamount to producing them drink poison”
Kelly wants to be released on bond, and says he’s willing to wear electronic tracking — although he notes it’s not really necessary, because during the current pandemic he’s a”low hazard” to go outside at all.
TMZ broke the story… Kelly’s legal team had been blocked from visiting in prison last week and it was due to this COVID-19 outbreak) Kelly’s attorneys had wanted to check on his health while at the same time discussing strategy, provided his ever-growing legal jumble .
In the new docs, Kelly points out that maintaining his lawyers as well as other people from entering doesn’t solve the problem of possible vulnerability… because there’s always new inmates entering.
As we reported… Kelly — currently behind bars in Illinois as he awaits his trial recently got slapped with a slew of new charges by national prosecutors in NY. The new indictment is related to 2 fresh alleged victims, one of whom was beneath 18 when she claimed she had sex with the singer in 2015.
The indictment includes charges of coercion and enticement, coercion of a small and transportation of a minor across state lines. Kelly’s been hit with new racketeering charges including allegations he used”force, threats of force, physical restraint and dangers of physical restraint.”
