Same prosecutor, same conversations.
They are discussing dramatically reducing the number of charges against the singer/child rapist and maybe even dismissing all of the charges.
Cook County State’s Attorney: Kim Foxx
R. Kelly’s lawyer seeks communications between Kim Foxx and indicted attorney Michael Avenatti
R. Kelly’s attorney moved quickly Monday to capitalize on the separate troubles of two key figures in the criminal charges against the R&B superstar.
Attorney Steven Greenberg filed a motion seeking to view any communications about Kelly shared between Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents at least one of Kelly’s alleged victims.
The request comes days after Foxx was roundly criticized for her office’s decision to abruptly dismiss all charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett and Avenatti was indicted on both coasts in separate federal indictments.
“There are serious questions whether Kim Foxx was bullied or just simply manipulated by Avenatti and others,” Greenberg, defending R. Kelly against 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, wrote in the motion. “The communications are key to uncovering the answers.”
In a written response, prosecutors took Greenberg to task for making a litany of allegations that have little to do with what he sought in his motion, accusing him of “speculation lacking in factual support.”
Prosecutors went on to say that Greenberg was unfairly characterizing the little evidence that the state’s attorney’s office had a chance to hand over this early in the case. – Source
