R. Kelly’s Lawyers Say Bystanders Didn’t ‘Raise a Finger’ While Singer Was Beaten

The issues that R. Kelly has faced while being in jail continue to be told through his lawyers, who are now saying Kelly was beaten while locked up, and no one in the facility where he’s being held even “raised a finger” to stop the attack from going down.

Legal documents filed by Kelly’s lawyers this past Friday say surveillance footage from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago shows that one inmate “roamed a great distance … before carrying out that act, without any opposition.” As a result of the inmate being able to roam, Kelly received “significant physical and psychological injuries.”

Michael Leonard, one of Kelly’s lawyers said, “An unresolved issue remains as to whether MCC personnel encouraged, and then allowed, a beating of Mr. Kelly to take place. That alone merits an evidentiary hearing.” Stay tuned for more details.
