For the second time since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, R&B crooner R. Kelly and his legal team have been trying to get the disgraced singer at least commuted to home confinement, but the judge said Kelly’s motion for release on bond did not present enough evidence the singer is uniquely at risk to contract the coronavirus.
