R. Kelly’s Lawyer Calls For Singer To Be Released From Solitary Confinement

R. Kelly’s lawyer doesn’t think the disgraced singer deserves to be in solitary confinement.

According to a motion filed Thursday by attorney Steve Greenberg, he wants a judge to order the Federal Bureau of Prisons to let his client out of the facility’s “most restrictive floor.”

Greenberg said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, that the area is “where inmates go to be punished.” Kelly has been held there since his July 11 arrest.

According to the documents, Kelly, who has been charged with 13 counts related to sex crimes (some involving minors), has “no meaningful interaction with other humans,” can’t go outside, and can’t watch TV.

The paperwork added the star also “has extremely limited literacy,” so documents have to be read to him.

According to the documents, there is no table in the meeting room, so any paperwork has to be kept on an attorney’s lap or the floor.

Greenberg stated, “Given that Mr. Kelly is cuffed during these visits, and there is no table, it is impossible for counsel to review documents with him and write notes.”

Kelly, who pleaded not guilty, is due back in court on September 17.

Kelly’s lawyer refused to comment when approached by ET Canada.
