R. Kelly's History Of Intimidating Witnesses Keeps Him Locked Up
(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly's bid to get out of jail has failed, and he will remain locked up until his trial in 2020.
His attorneys insisted R. Kelly was not getting sufficient medical treatment for paralysis in his hand, stress, and an untreated hernia.
A judge has just rejected R. Kelly's release, because the singer is a flight risk.
And since R. Kelly has a history of obstructing justice, home confinement would not stop him from trying to threaten witnesses in the case.
Timothy Savage is the father of one R. Kelly’s girlfriends.
In a May 2018 phone call, Mason told Timothy Savage, "I'm gonna do harm to you and your family, when I see you I'm gonna get you, I'm going to f##king kill you."
Joycelyn Savage's family alleges she has been brainwashed and victimized by R. Kelly, who supposedly runs a sex cult.
The 52-year-old Chicago native has pleaded not guilty to 18 felony counts for sexually abusing minors.
According to reports, a trial date for R. Kelly has been set for May 18, 2020 and he will remain locked up until then.
