Singer R. Kelly is facing numerous cases in a handful of states but according to his Lawyer, he’s remaining positive through it all. Attorney Raed Shalabi exclusively chatted with The Blast to discuss, as much as he could, the trials awaiting his client. There’s an upcoming criminal trial in Chicago, multiple sexual assault cases, and federal investigations in New York surrounding tax evasion and sex trafficking.
“We’re briefing him all the time and we’re talking,” Shalabi said. “With the court system itself, yes, he believes he’s going to get a fair trial and things like that. However, he does realize the court of public opinion is not really on his side at this point. And that’s kinda why he wants to get his side of the story across.”
