I wonder why this is happening, R. Kelly’s sentencing was postponed for two weeks by a federal judge in New York on Friday after his lawyer claimed that specialists she hired were unable to gain access to the singer in federal custody in Brooklyn. Kelly’s sentencing hearing was moved from June 15 to June 29 by U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly, who stated in her ruling that this would be the final time she granted a change. The hearing had been scheduled for May 4th. I really don’t think that R Kelly is going to get out anytime soon, so why is there so many different trials and shit? I mean we all know that R Kelly is guilty, and its possible that he will die in jail. I just do not understand why they are dragging this on when it is really just over for him. I really need to understand this whole thing.

Kelly, 55, faces a sentence of 10 years to life in prison after being found guilty of racketeering conspiracy counts in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn on Sept. 27. He was accused of using his music career to support a criminal enterprise. A jury convicted him guilty of 12 separate unlawful acts, including having intercourse with many underage females and bribing an Illinois public aid officer in 1994 to procure a fake ID for 15-year-old singer Aaliyah so the two could marry.
