R&B singer, and certified pedophile, R Kelly was released from a Chicago jail on Monday afternoon after posting $100,000 bond. Kelly surrendered to the police last Friday, and plead not guilty to 10 aggravated sexual assault charges. Judge Lawrence Flood of the Circuit Court of Cook County instructed the perpetrator to refrain from contacting the victims or witnesses. He must also stay away from anyone under the age of 18. R Kelly is to then return to court on March 22. Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, believes that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has succumbed to public pressure and that Kelly is innocent. He said: “I think all the women are lying… Mr. Kelly is strong, he’s got a lot of support and he’s going to be vindicated on all these charges – one by one if it is has to be”.
Yes He Really Did Say That…
Attorney Michael Avenatti is representing six of the victims. He met with the prosecutors on Monday and turned over a video that he claims shows Kelly engaged in sexual intercourse with a 14 year old girl. Avenatti said: “The fact of the matter is, and I’m going to call it like I see it, had these victims not been black and had they not come from, in many cases, disadvantaged households or households of lower socioeconomic status, this guy would not be walking free today.” He also went on to blast Greenberg for calling the victims liars. He said: “It is impossible and it is outrageous for Mr. Greenberg and other enablers of Mr. Kelly to suggest that all of these young ladies … are lying about this conduct.” And let me tell you guys, he’s certainly not finished:
I can confirm that we will be providing a second video showing R. Kelly engaged in sexual assault of a minor to prosecutors this morning. This tape was recently uncovered in connection with our ongoing nationwide investigation on behalf of victims. Justice must be done.

The audacity of the man to deny any sort of allegation towards underage sexual abuse is shocking. Video evidence has been present spanning decades. The criminal legal system’s always presents holes when it comes to perpetrators affording bond and released from jail. All the while their victims wait anxiously for the end of their suffering. Let justice finally be served for these poor women.
