The prosecutors taking on R. Kelly are demanding the alleged child sex predator be shut down in his attempt to skip a hearing.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly’s lawyer wrote a letter to the judge presiding over the singer’s New York criminal case. A hearing is scheduled for February 6, where Kelly was expected to appear.
The singer’s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, put in a request for Kelly to waive his appearance aka not show up. Greenberg said he would not be able to personally appear nor would one of Kelly’s other lawyers.
