Judge Grants Protective Order On R. Kelly’s Chicago Case Against Those “Disgruntled Groupies” He Allegedly Assaulted
R. Kelly really seems to be a piece of shit, but that’s because we’ve heard all these dark stories about him along with what appears to be corroborating evidence. So we, the public, have formed some opinions. Well, a judge wants to put a stop to that–a Chicago judge has just granted a protective order on some trial information so we won’t get to find out about just how crazy R. Kelly allegedly is. This comes after getting arrested for additional charges including child porn and being sent to jail where he sits in solitary. But if you ask R. Kelly about this mess he’s in, this is all just the work of some “disgruntled groupies”. Really? Even the child sex tapes with you in them?
R. Kelly is in solitary confinement and he’s been using the time to really work on himself and come up with a defense strategy. So far that strategy seems to be to call his accusers liars and other names in the press.
Variety reports that a judge has approved a protective order in the child porn and obstruction case against R. Kelly in Chicago. Robert apparently was concerned about being “tried in the public domain” if too much pre-trial information came out. The protection stops attorneys on either side from talking about details of evidence turned over during the advance of trial. This is coming after prosecutors revealed for the first time that most of the alleged victims in this new trial are brand-spanking new. Meaning, They’ve never publicly come forward; they weren’t in Surviving R. Kelly and they aren’t any of his previous accusers. Attorney, Angel Krull, says only one of the five victims in the indictment was in the documentary:
“The vast majority of our evidence has never seen the light of day.”
So this actually pissed off R. Kelly’s people because they argue that now they won’t be able to rebut accusations which could be made against R. Kelly by alleged victims or witnesses. The judge didn’t care, and approved the order:
“What we are concerned with in a case like this is people trying the case in the public domain as opposed to court.”
Meanwhile, TMZ says that R. Kelly’s lawyers have started on the offensive. They asked a federal judge to release him before his trial. I guess he finally got tired of solitary? They say he does not represent a threat, because these allegations against him are bogus–which is hilarious. Can you imagine? “Um, can my accused murderer be let out of jail because he hasn’t been proven a murderer yet and thus he should be let out because there is like no way those serial murders will continue.”
Which is basically what they said. The legal documents call the alleged victims:
“Groupies [who] sought out Robert’s attention, even fought each other for it, voluntarily contacted him, came to his shows, pined to be with him.”
I also vomited in my mouth reading that. But listen, there’s more.
“Five disgruntled groupies, not all of which are alleged to be underage, who now show groupie remorse so many years later and only after a TV Show and an aggressive, vocal Cook County prosecutor makes a public cry for ‘victims come forth,’ tell your story and be famous.”
And they focus on one victim who was not a minor at the time she contacted him and how she came to his door and:
“Wanted him so much that she alleges that she did not require or even request that a condom be used.”
I’m sorry I should have warned you not to eat before reading this. They also argue that R. Kelly didn’t give her herpes and she might have got it elsewhere since she was “admittedly promiscuous.”
I mean, maybe you should stick to the judge’s suggestions to shut the fuck up. This doesn’t come off good–not that R. Kelly could do literally anything at this point and it would come off well, but you know. R. Kelly’s also being charged in New York but I haven’t read about any protective orders there. So hey! Feel free to keep talking in New York, R. Kelly! See? There’s a bright side to being hit with federal charges in two separate states!
