Prosecutors are accusing R. Kelly of violating the rules while locked up and attempting to secretly communicate with people without it being monitored by officials.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, prosecutors are firing back at Kelly’s recent motion in his criminal case.
Kelly is demanding to know the identities of two “Jane Does” listed in his criminal indictment. He argues without the names he can’t build his defense. In his motion, he argued he is no danger and has no resources to harass or intimidate the alleged victims.
His lawyers wrote, “At the time of his arrest Mr. Kelly was living in a small condominium, working with his longtime producer, without other employees of note, and effectively without any income. He had no “enterprise” as the government likes to call his career and his business, RSK Enterprises.”
Further, he argued, “As noted above, Mr. Kelly remains in custody at the federal jail in Chicago. All of his phone calls are monitored. All of his mail is monitored. Other than legal counsel his only visitor is his girlfriend, Joycelyn. He simply has no means or method by which to engage in any obstructive conduct.”
