Popular RnB artist R.Kelly, failed to appear for a court hearing on Thursday, August 15, after, it was alleged by his prosecutors that he “refused transport” from his Chicago jail cell, he was accused of using his fame to recruit young women and girls into illegal sexual activity.
He was supposed to appear in court on Thursday, but prosecutors claimed he ‘refused transport.’
At the hearing which proceeded without him, Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Gonzalez said: “The defendant was to be brought to court today. That was all worked out. The sheriffs were going to be bringing him over.”
“As I understand it, he refused transport and so that is why the defendant is not before your honor today,” she continued.
But Kelly’s defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, denied the allegation, arguing instead that the singer failed to show because of transportation issues.
