"We believe justice has been served," Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said about dropping sex abuse charges against disgraced singer R. Kelly.
37-year-old Trump stump Brendan Hunt was arrested and convicted of posting a series of messages to social media that included death threats directed at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. On Tuesday, Hunt's attorneys filed a leniency request that included an R Kelly comic.
The family of one of R. Kelly's more infamous girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage, are still reaching out in hopes that she'll escape the Stockholm syndrome he seems to have over her even from prison.
The disgraced R&B singer is expected to be sentenced on May 4, 2022, after a federal jury found him guilty on sex trafficking and racketeering charges on Sept. 27.
Chuck D shared a tweet asking "How long should R. Kelly spend in prison -and does a USA system give a man a chance for a man to change his world around?" Meanwhile, embattled comedian Bill Cosby claimed Kelly "got railroaded."
As the verdict finding R Kelly guilty on all charges was announced, a number of his supporters were gathered outside the courthouse playing his music in defiance of the long-overdue push to #MuteRKelly. One supporter declared, "We will not give up on R Kelly." Meanwhile, Kelly's defense team is considering an appeal.
