R. Kelly is going to wait in jail for his trial on child pornography and other charges until next year.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, his trial was postponed until September 2021.
The singer pleaded not guilty to federal charges in Chicago allegeding that he filmed himself having sex with underaged females and paid off witnesses during his 2008 trial.
Kelly is also facing racketeering charges in New York in April.
U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber said the new September date is subject to change, but that has not stopped Kelly from trying to get out of jail since he was arrested in July.
A judge denied multiple requests for his release as Kelly argued that he’s on the high-risk spectrum of the COVID-19.
