The embattled world’s biggest R&B stars Robert Kelly Known for his smash hit “I Believe I Can Fly” , who is currently serving 30-year in prison for sex trafficking and racketeering after a trial in 2023 at New York, has been transferred from the Metropolitan Correctional Center Chicago to the federal correctional institution in Butner, North Carolina.
The reason for the transfer was basically on health grounds according to Kelly’s lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, statement.
“Kelly was moved to Butner FCI which is a medium security facility. He was always going to be designated to a BOP facility other than MCC so this is not a surprise even if we don’t always get advance notice of the timing. He continues to suffer from health issues caused by medical negligence at the MCC Chicago. We are hopeful that Butner will ensure that his medical needs are met. In the meantime, we have filed his brief in the Second Circuit which challenges his unjust conviction and 30 year sentence. Many fights ahead of us”.
Kelly, rose from poverty to be one of the best American singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He was one of the best-selling rhythm-and-blues (R&B) artists of the 1990s and early 21st century, known for his gospel-tinged vocal delivery.Follow us on social media
