R. Kelly’s legal battles aren’t quite over just yet. He was placed on suicide watch right after being found guilty of racketeering charges in New York on September 27th. His sentencing awaits, but his next court date has already been set. R. Kelly will be heading back to court in his hometown of Chicago for child pornography and obstruction of justice charges.
According to The Chicago Tribune, a trial date of August 1, 2022 has been set and R. Kelly will be accompanied by his longtime associates and co-defendants, Derrel McDavid and Milton “June” Brown.
Reports state that if the Chicago federal case does make it to trial, it will likely focus on the graphic videotapes Kelly allegedly made that depicted him having sex with at least three female minors, according to court records.
