Two of the accusations at R. KellyA federal case – one of which is that he deliberately gave female herpes – would not be dropped, according to the judge’s decision.
Kelly is currently on trial for several criminal accounts including sex trafficking, extortion, and coercion related to six women and girls among many others. This R&B singer’s defense tries to claim that it is unconstitutional for someone to be banned from engaging in consensual sexual activity because they have a sexually transmitted infection. Judge Ann Donnelly denied the defense claim, instead ruled that “public health is in the country’s legitimate interests.”
The court papers show that he went on to explain that “the New York Public Health Act, which makes it a minor offense for ‘[a]a person who knows he is infected with a sexually transmitted disease, has sexual relations with another person, ‘and Article 120.20 of the New York Criminal Law, carelessly endangering the second level, who’ are carelessly involved[ing] in behavior that creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury to others, ‘class A violations.’
This basically means that the law has the right to punish those who have unprotected sex while knowing that they have a sexually transmitted disease and chose not to notify their partners. The second charge that will not be overturned is in connection with the violation of his extortion.
Prior to this, R. Kelly denied being released from prison after he tried to claim pre-diabetes. Because of the rapid spread of COVID-19, many prisons were forced to relieve some prisoners because of health risks. R. Kelly will not be one of them.
This is R. Kelly’s third attempt to be released from prison.
