R.Kelly is trying his hardest to get out of this conviction in which he was charged for racketeering. singer has hired Jennifer Bonjean, the New York-based attorney who won an appeal of Bill Cosby’s sex abuse case, to represent him as he appeals his racketeering conviction. According to the Chicago Tribune, Bonjean will push for a new trial. However, if that’s denied, she will appeal before the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

she said she’s “looking forward to getting familiar with the record” in Kelly’s case and believes he is a victim of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

“I am becoming increasingly concerned with how the government is abusing the RICO statute in order to plead around the statute of limitations and essentially put people’s entire lives on trial,” said Bonjean, who also represents NXIVM sex-cult leader Keith Raniere. “It’s becoming a formula for the government. You have a right to defend yourself against specific allegations.”

Are we here for R.Kelly to get out of jail?

Taking over Twitter as VH1iNFO was the start of my career. After gaining over 27,000 followers, I got into podcasting. Using Blogtalk Radio as a platform. I created "Have a Seat Radio" and it took off from there. Have a Seat radio had over 100K listeners across the board? Interviewed Reality Stars, Musicians, Professional backup dancers. I was joined by Jeff Lewis who is the CEO of itsonlyentertainment.com and Tori Bleu who was a local Atlanta artist and well connected to the industry. Our show went viral several times and ended up on People.com, Bossip.com, And plenty of huge websites. Hip Hop Weekly Magazine eventually came to us for an interview and featured us in one of their magazine issues.
