Surviving R. Kelly turned the nation the wrong way up. Old mates, collaborators, colleagues, and friends have rebuked R. Kelly for the reason that documentary dropped. Although the person’s music catalog is not up for debate, his historical past manipulating and sexually seducing younger ladies is inexcusable. What makes the accusations even worse is the incontrovertible fact that the media has been poking enjoyable at Kelly’s alleged tendencies for many years. Huey from The Boondocks mentioned it the very best (shout out Regina King).
On Friday (January 11), one R. Kelly’s attorneys, Steve Greenberg, was interviewed by the Associate Press. He claimed that his shopper denies all allegations sexual misconduct involving ladies and underage ladies. Kelly is even denying all of the allegations from the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series, though neither Kells or his lawyer have watched all the film. “The allegations aren’t true as a result of he by no means knowingly had intercourse with an underage lady, he by no means compelled anybody to do something, he by no means held anybody captive, he by no means abused anybody,” acknowledged Greenberg.“Now, some producer went working round and solicited all these folks, did a Jerry Springer-esque present and there’s all this uproar. It’s disgusting.” Greenberg is utilizing an identical argument as different attorneys who’ve defended shoppers within the current wave the #MeToo motion. He is questioning the credibility the ladies, the timing the complaints, and the very fact probably the most these accusers by no means notified police and even complained.
Katie Sumers, a 28-year-old mother two, appeared in court on Wednesday as the defendant in a case concerning a fatal collision. The woman, who is known on social media as @loseitconkatie, is said to have struck and killed a 31-year-old dad with her car on Tuesday. The deceased man was riding a moped at the time. Summers is believed to have been drunk and stoned during the deadly accident.
The judge found probable cause to hold her on suspicion vehicular homicide. Her bail was set at $500 000.
She will be tried for the death Leonel Birrueta, a Kennewick native who was struck at an intersection. Court documents state that Summers had actually stopped for a moment at the scene and got out her Toyota Tundra pickup truck. Witnesses claim the defendant did not identify herself, attempt to be helpful or even call 911. Instead, she is said to have gotten back into her vehicle and driven f.
The defendant was found by the police shortly after, less than a block from the incident in the parking lot a nearby Albertsons grocery store. Officers said she admitted she had been driving the truck. The smell alcohol and marijuana was evident on her person during the interaction. Summers also admitted she had been drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana before the crash.
A GoFundMe page has been launched to help cover the funeral costs for Birrueta.
Meek Mill lost his latest appeal to have Judge Genece Brinkley removed from her seat. Yesterday afternoon, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied a motion filed by Meek Mill’s legal team to have her removed from his case on grounds that she was biased. Even though it was rejected in principle, Meek & his attorneys still have the option resubmitting the motion to a lower court, a move Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina has already vowed they will pursue to the bitter end.
“While the Pennsylvania Supreme Court declined to immediately hear our application to reassign Meek’s case to a new judge, we understand the Court wants us to go through the normal course appeals to the Superior Court and we intend to do just that,” Meek’s lawyer Joe Tacopina said in a statement.
As you know, Judge Brinkley handed Meek a 2-4 year prison sentence in November 2017, which was later commuted after a wave protests from the public and high ranking ficials. After stating his legal team’s course action, Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina reaffirmed his team’s commitment to rectifying “this grave miscarriage justice.”
Meek recently spoke his time in prison on Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom, a podcast firmly devoted to calling out criminal injustice. On the podcast he he likened his prison experience, to cruel treatment “you wouldn’t do to your pets.”
NaNa, a rapper based in Dallas, has found himself in a legal situation in which his own lyrics are being used against him. The 22-year-old’s rhymes have been wielded in court to justify a hefty sentence.
U.S. District Judge Barbara matched his lyrics to crimes he was suspected committing. One the songs she referred to told the story a robbery that involved the victim being shot in the face by the narrator. “You’re bragging about shooting a person,” Judge Lynn said in court. “It’s violence times 10 at every phase.” The young man was initially facing a 6-year sentence. Lynn believed his violent lyrics justified a longer stay in prison, even though the tale is most likely fictional given the fact that this is the case with most songs.
This conclusion is somewhat oblique given the fact that NaNa, whose real name is Nykees “NaNa” Campbell, was charged with a drug-related crime. He was sentenced for cocaine distribution after pleading guilty to the charge in February. The crime considered to be non-violent. Still, it played an integral part in the prosecution the young artist.
NaNa is said to be linked to the YNB Stretch Gang. The crew is allegedly responsible for a considerable about criminal activity in their city Dallas Texas.
In case you missed it, Lil Scrappy was involved in a serious car accident over the weekend that left him practically unconscious and in the hospital. The Love & Hip-Hop star was driving down a Miami highway early Sunday morning after leaving King Of Diamonds strip club when his vehicle swerved f the road and slammed into a light pole, totaling the car. When the cops arrived, he & his buddy, Ca$ino Roulette, were found outside the car & on the ground, not knowing how they got there or what had happened. They were then rushed to the hospital, where they’re both currently recovering.
Well just like what happened to Offset last month, Lil Scrappy won’t be facing any criminal charges for the accident. TMZ reports that the police have closed their investigation into Scrappy’s nasty car accident. Cops said there was no evidence drugs or alcohol in Scrappy, and no other cars or witnesses were involved, which ultimately led to their decision not to pursue criminal charges.
However Scrappy could see the case reopened if the worse case scenario were to happen. While he won’t be charge at the moment, the only way that could change is if the buddy who was with him, Ca$ino Roulette, were to tragically die. He was brought to the ICU because his injuries were so serious, but nothing more has been announced since so hopefully all is well with him.
We’ll continue to keep you posted on Scrappy’s recovery.
