-------------------------------

Two of R. Kelly's attorneys have requested to withdraw from the star's counsel.

Mike Leonardo and Steven Greenberg confirmed to Fox News on Monday that they have asked a New York judge to allow them to step aside in the case.

In a letter obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times written by Greenberg to Judge Ann Donnelly, the Chicago-based attorney said that should the court deem it fit, he and Leonardo would stand "as effective stand-by counsel."

"While we recognize that this request comes close to trial – and we are ready to proceed to trial as scheduled in August – our reasons for withdrawal are significant and it is impossible, in our belief, for us to be able to continue to properly represent Mr. Kelly under the current circumstances," he said.


"The government was advised of our position and reasons in a phone call," Greenberg continued. "We are requesting that the court set our request for hearing."

"Ultimately, as trial lawyers and in the interests of the client, we weren’t comfortable professionally with allowing lawyers who have never tried federal criminal cases to have significant trial responsibilities," the attorney told the Sun-Times. "That approach was not to everyone’s liking."

Echoed Leonard: "Ultimately, as trial lawyers and in the interests of the client, we were only comfortable professionally with giving significant trial responsibilities to those who have substantial federal criminal jury trial experience. We wish Mr. Kelly nothing but the greatest success."

The exact reasons for the lawyers' request are currently unclear, imageimageimage
I WONDER WHY ? Ahah


"They are trying so hard to get #Rkelly that they are using a 60 year old law that has never been used before, against anyone," he tweeted last week.

Prosecutors in Brooklyn allege Kelly led an enterprise made up of his managers, bodyguards and other employees who helped him recruit women and girls for s*x. A jury is expected to hear testimony from alleged victims, each identified in court papers only as "Jane Doe."

Born Robert Sylvester Kelly, the three-time Grammy Award-winner has pleaded not guilty to multiple federal and state charges, including child s*xual exploitation, child pr0nography production, kidnapping, forced labor, racketeering and obstruction of justice.

Three alleged accomplices have been charged by prosecutors and are accused of threatening and intimidating people that have accused Kelly of committing crimes.


In April, U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly gave the green light to move the star from Chicago to New York ahead of his August trial.

The exact timing of the move was not immediately clear, but the singer will be relocated to the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

Here's the Latin King who already beat up R.Kelly when he was locked up wit him in Chicago.




Jeremiah Shane Farmer, 39, wrote that “the government made me attack” R. Kelly and that he did so “in hopes of getting spotlight attention and world news notice to shed light on” alleged government corruption.

Steve Greenberg, one of Kelly’s defense lawyers, confirmed to the Chicago Sun-Times that Farmer is the detainee alleged to have attacked Kelly. Kelly had been attacked by a fellow detainee who has the phrase “Fu** The Feds” tattooed on his face.

Dude in jail like they already found him guilty of all counts. Say what you want about him but he was definitely purposely targeted, even when he was released it didn't even matter. All while his white counterparts who are real pedophiles get to destroy more lives

By the way I don't know too many predators who pay their "victims" and their parents and the families for years like R.kelly did

U didn't even read it.

The truth is the system trying to screw him and between the other counselors and the law it's becoming clear he is being screwed.

It's sad because black people are supporting this sh*t too.


Based on the charges if RKelly is up there the parents should be his co-defendants.

Hes not on trial for that jackass.

And by ya definition aren't you spreading child pr0n right now?
What are the allegations?

Prosecutors in Cook County announced the aggravated criminal s*xual abuse charges, involving four victims, on Friday.

They say they took place between 1998 and 2010. Documents say at least three of the victims were aged between 13 and 16 at the time of their reported a*saults.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx said he could face a maximum of seven years in prison for each count.

A no-bail arrest warrant has been issued for Kelly.

Mr Greenberg, his lawyer, told AP that he had offered to sit down with prosecutors before the filing to describe "why these charges are baseless" but said they refused.


How did the charges come about?

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx had urged women to come forward after the documentary series aired.

History of allegations against R Kelly
R Kelly's daughter: He's a monster

Lawyer Michael Avenatti has said he is representing six people, including two alleged victims, making allegations against Kelly. At least one of the victims is included in Friday's indictment, he said.

Mr Avenatti came forward last week to say he had uncovered and handed over previously unreleased footage showing Kelly engaging in s*x with an underage girl to prosecutors.

The lawyer says the 40-minute tape, believed to be shot in 1999, shows him having s*xual intercourse and engaging in other s*xual and lewd acts with a 14-year-old. He has alleged both Kelly and the girl "repeatedly" reference her age as being 14 in the video.


Kelly was previously acquitted over another video tape of a similar nature in 2008.
----------------------------------------------
Read that sh*t and be quiet breh. There is no excuse for this. And the woman in that pic is of age(at least I believe she was) , the fact you at least believed it to be a minor shows me you have enough sense to know right from wrong, but you're still in here trying to grey out areas.

Also the same ones who believe that a majority of homos*xual men are pedophiles or were touched at some point. Just to be rationalizing pedophilia to defend an undisputed pedophile

They made him beat RKelly up. He didn’t wanna do it. I don’t know if you caught that part.

They aren't stepping down because they know he's guilty. They are stepping down because they don't have federal trial experience and don't feel they can defend him properly.

"Ultimately, as trial lawyers and in the interests of the client, we weren’t comfortable professionally with allowing lawyers who have never tried federal criminal cases to have significant trial responsibilities,"

Now is he guilty? I think so, so there's no sympathy. But all that should be taken as the reason is the reason given. a*sumptions are just dumb.
