The covid-19 situation affecting the planet has also made court proceedings an issue in terms of dates. R. Kelly was expected to be on trial in New York in July but,
according to a report by Page Six, the singer’s trial for sex trafficking and racketeering charges has been pushed back until September 2020.

As of right now, he is scheduled to be in court on September 29, but if the coronavirus outbreak does not improve before then and lockdown measures are still in place, his trial will obviously be delayed again.

Although the date was co-signed by Brooklyn Judge Ann Donnelly, one of Kelly’s legal representatives believes there is no chance that the trial actually begins that soon.

“It’s impossible that that date is going to happen,” said Douglas Anton, a New Jersey-based attorney working with the singer.
