R. Kelly is being held in a Federal facility in Chicago on various sexual misconduct charges.
He's in solitary because of his celebrity status and because the nature of his alleged crimes makes him vulnerable to attack in general population.
He's been there since July. According to his lawyer, he really wants out.
Steven Greenberg says his client has no meaningful interaction with other people, gets no sunlight, has no recreational activity, can only shower three times a week, can't talk to the media, only gets 15 minutes of phone calls a month, and can't buy snacks or candy from the commissary.
Greenberg doesn't think someone who has neither been convicted of a crime nor broken any prison rules should be in solitary.
A judge will take up a motion to send Kells to general pop next week.
