Attorney for Timothy Savage, Gerald Griggs, tells The Blast, James Mason was indicted Thursday by Georgia’s Henry County District Attorney on 1 felony county of making terroristic threats.
Mason is accused of making threats to Savage, the father of 23-year-old Joycelyn, who is currently dating Kelly. The former manager allegedly tried to scare Timothy and the Savage family when they originally began questioning the relationship between the singer and Joycelyn.
According to a police report, filed by Timothy, Mason said, “I’m gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I’m gonna get you, I’m going to f***ing kill you.”
As we reported, Mason surrendered to police back in January after being charged with terroristic threats. Now with the indictment, he’s facing up to 10 years in prison.
Griggs tells us, “Today’s indictment of Henry James Mason, former manager of R. Kelly, further underscores the public accountability that victims and families are pressing on R. Kelly and his team.”
He continues, “The Savage family will not be bullied or threatened in their quest to reunite with Joycelyn. Let this be a message to all associates of Robert Sylvester Kelly that the Savages are serious about justice and accountability.”
Kelly appeared in a Chicago courtroom earlier on Thursday and entered a not guilty plea to 11 new sex-abused related felonies he had recently been hit with. He’s now racked up a total of 21 felony charges, not including the looming federal indictments after weeks of testimony to the grand jury.
