Jeremiah Farmer might be the one who gets R Kelly released from jail.
It likely wouldn’t matter because Kelly is wanted for crimes in several other states, but his lawyer is trying hard to get him out.
Here is what happened when Farmer tried to kill him.
R. Kelly has asked a Chicago judge to release him on bail after he was assaulted by a fellow inmate, who wrote in a newly released motion that ‘the government made [him] attack’ the singer.
Details corroborated Jeremiah Shane Farmer, the convicted Latin Kings member who confessed to the attack, could help Kelly’s sixth appeal for release from federal prison.
It also could help a claim from Kelley’s attorney, Michael I. Leonard, that faculty at the Bureau of Prisons facility even encouraged Farmer to attack his client.
Farmer said he was ‘forced’ to attack Kelly ‘in hopes of getting spotlight attention and world news notice to shed light on the government corruption,’ according to court documents obtained by The Chicago Tribune.
An incident report from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons attached to Farmer’s filing said that he managed to separate from prison guards, enter Kelly’s cell as he slept and repeatedly stomped on his head.
There are even more details on how the COs helped Farmer with his attack.
If Farmer would have been able to get his pen out R Kelly might not be here today.
