R Kelly Pleads To Be Released From Solitary Confinement 

Reports came in earlier that R Kelly is happy to be in solitary confinement as a result of fear that inmates might harm him. It appears he’s no longer comfortable sitting in solitary confinement.
R Kelly is accused of sexual misconduct in Illinois, Minnesota and New York, in addition to federal charges.

His lawyer said the disgraced R&B star is enduring “cruel and unusual punishment” by being held in solitary confinement in a Chicago jail.
Kelly’s lead defense attorney Steve Greenberg has filed a motion asking a judge to order the Federal Bureau of Prisons to remove the star from solitary and allow him to mix with the other inmates.
KY3 News reports that Greenberg complained to U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber Kelly is being held on the most restrictive floor of the jail. The floor is usually reserved for inmates who have violated the facility’s rules, which Kelly hasn’t done.
Prison officials say that Kelly’s “alleged offense and notoriety” as a reason to keep him in solitary.
R Kells lawyer, listed off a bunch of reasons why Kells should be released from solitary, the main one being that solitary is meant to punish inmates. Greenberg argued that Kelly is locked up without human interaction, access to sunlight and media, recreational activities or even private one-on-one visitations that aren’t under surveillance. 
Some of what Greenberg brought up seems a bit inhumane as well, even for an accused pedophile. Aside from only getting one 15-min. phone call a month, R Kelly has limited access to emails but he is illiterate and can’t read, he’s apparently only allowed to shower three days a week.

Greenberg said that Kelly’s being treated like this because he’s a celebrity, even though he’s obeyed the rules and hasn’t been convicted of any of the crimes he’s been charged with.
