R Kelly Moved To General Population In Prison



R Kelly Has Been Moved From Solitary confinement To General Population

R Kelly has been kept in solitary confinement for a while now following his arrest after being accused of sexual misconduct in Illinois, Minnesota and New York, in addition to federal charges.
According to his lawyer “The disgraced R&B star is enduring “cruel and unusual punishment” by being held in solitary confinement in a Chicago jail.

R. Kelly has now been transferred to general population inside of the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s Special Housing Unit.
“Defendant stated that the MCC staff told him that he could ‘try it [general population] in a couple of days to see what it looked like, but they can’t guarantee nothing,'” prosecutors wrote.
“You know, and that’s why, I was like, hmmm, too many people up on you and I done seen too many movies, you know,” Kelly reportedly said during a recorded phone call.
His lawyer Steven Greenberg maintains that Kelly had no “meaningful interaction” with humans.
“Once [prison officials] could assure his safety it was time to move him,” Greenberg said. “He has been a model inmate and should be treated with an appropriate level of respect and privilege, not as if he has misbehaved.”
But R. Kelly is reportedly worried about how he will adjust to his new environment.
“I’m just up on everybody and everybody’s up on me, and I’m trying to figure out how to trust that or whatever,” R. Kelly supposedly told a friend during a call from the jail last week.
At the least, the ease of restrictions and change of surroundings should help R. Kelly better prepare for his defense.

At worse, his life could be in serious jeopardy now that he is being held among other dangerous prisoners.
