R Kelly’s request for release due to the coronavirus pandemic has been denied.

US District Judge, Ann Donnelly has denied convicted singer R Kelly’s plea to be released from prison. Reason being that he may be at risk of being exposed to the coronavirus. It has been established however, that he is not among the inmates impacted by the disease.

“The defendant 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”, wrote Judge Donnelly.
