R. Kelly Remains In Detention As Judge Denies Him Bail

American singer, R. Kelly will continue to remain in Chicago detention as a federal judge in New York City has denied him bail in his sex-abuse case.

Kelly didn’t attend the hearing on Wednesday on a defence motion asking for his release on bond. U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly agreed with prosecutors that he’s a flight risk and a potential threat to witnesses. He remains detained in Chicago, where he faces related charges.

A judge there hasn’t ruled on a request to reconsider releasing him on bond.

The singer whose full name is Robert Kelly, is accused of using his fame to recruit young women and girls for illegal sexual activity. The New York judge set a trial date of May 18. That would follow a trial in Chicago scheduled to begin on April 27.
