Disgraced rapper R. Kelly's federal trial in Chicago on child porn charges is set to begin in April. As Fox News reports:
 

R. Kelly’s federal trial in Chicago is scheduled to begin in April, a judge ruled Wednesday.

One day after he was released from solitary housing in the Windy City’s Metropolitan Correctional Center and into the general population at the lockup facility, a judge set an April 27, 2020 trial date for child pornography and obstruction charges against the embattled “I Believe I Can Fly” crooner, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago confirmed to The Post.

Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but The Associated Press reports that the attorney expressed doubts that Kelly’s defense team could be ready for trial by that point.

The federal case in Chicago is one of four sex-crime cases bearing down on the 52-year-old R&B performer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly.


We can only hope that justice will finally be served in this case come April.
