R. Kelly is currently awaiting trial on federal sex-crime charges against underage girls. With the release of the docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, those who did not know much about R. Kelly were hit with a reality check. Those who had heard of the atrocities he had committed, were assured of his crimes.
Now, R Kelly is locked up behind bars and is happily accepting his place in solitary confinement. It is reported that he fears for his life in general population, and wishes to remain in solitary confinement despite the additional hardships.
Prisoners in general population have constant access to the phone, but Kelly will only have 15 minutes per month to talk to family and friends. In addition to this, he will have no TV or internet access, and because he is illiterate, he can’t even read or write.
Kelly is awaiting trial on a 13-count indictment involving charges that include child porn, enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity and obstruction of justice.
