R. Kelly has been put on a self-destruction watch at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, where he’s being held after the 55-year-old shamed artist was condemned to 30 years in jail on racketeering and sex dealing charges recently.

“Mr. Kelly was put on self-destruction watch for simply correctional reasons disregarding his Eighth Amendment freedoms,” his legal counselor, Jennifer Bonjean, said in a proclamation to ET. “MDC has a strategy of putting high profile people under the cruel states of self-destruction watch regardless of whether they are self-destructive (this was done as of late with Ghislaine Maxwell).

MDC Brooklyn is being run like a gulag. My accomplice and I talked with Mr. Kelly following his condemnation, he communicated that he was intellectually fine and ONLY communicated worry that despite the fact that he was NOT self-destructive, MDC would put him on self-destruction watch (as they did following the liable decision).

We are currently captivating in the court in this matter as his position on self-destruction watch is unlawful.”

On June 29, Kelly was condemned to 30 years in prison, five years of regulated discharge and a $100,000 fine, nine months after he was found blameworthy on one count of racketeering and eight infringement of the Mann Act by a government jury.

Kelly and I think many individuals were expecting,” legitimate master Jesse Weber told ET after Kelly’s condemnation. “At the point when you get indicted for sex dealing and racketeering, you expect an enormous jail sentence and this is precisely the exact thing we saw here.”

“A firm jail sentence sends the message to the world, one, that nobody is exempt from the rules that everyone else follows, two, the gravity of these offenses can not be trifled with and I think number three, which is likely the main, the expressions of these casualties, the expressions of these survivors truly played a consider this condemning choice,” he added.

“I think this is successfully a lifelong incarceration for R. Kelly, he will use the remainder of his lifespan in a correctional facility.”

Kelly has been imprisoned without bail beginning around 2019. Beyond New York, Kelly has to deal with different penalties in Illinois and Minnesota, including bothered sexual maltreatment, youngster erotic entertainment, temptation of a minor, check of equity, prostitution and requesting of a minor.
