According to recent information, it might be possible for R. Kelly to taste life outside of a jail again, as it was reported that the disgraced R&B mogul might be considered for release on bail.
Even though Kelly’s first motion for bail hearing was denied in 2019, the second attempt turned out to be successful, when Judge Harry D. Leinenweber recently approved the motion that was filed by the singer’s attorney, Steven Greenberg.
Greenberg insisted that if Kelly was set free, there was not any chance of him ever hiding away from justice, as his enormous fame prevented him from escaping the public eye. Besides, Kelly’s lawyer reminded the court of his client’s exemplary behavior in the past.
As was stated by the famous musician’s legal defense team, the defendant deserved to be released from jail because he never missed a single court date during the course of his previous case that spanned from 2002 until 2008.
In case the “I Believe I Can Fly” performer’s wish is granted, and he is released on bail, he most likely will still be confined under house arrest with electronic monitoring.
Greenberg also claimed that if his client gets out of jail, Kelly would refrain from any communication with underage girls and limit his usage of the most popular social media platforms.
The disgraced singer’s hearing is scheduled to take place on March 5, but he was slapped with a new indictment in Chicago federal court, so things might still be complicated for him.
