After Verdict on R.Kelly US Asks for $28000 in Kelly's Account Now Judge Donnelly Grants It

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

EDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 9 – After the conviction and sentencing of R.Kelly in the Eastern District of New York, on July 18 jury selection became for the trial of his associate Donnell Russell for threats to try to stop a screening of the documentary "Surviving R.Kelly." As with the EDNY trial (below), but in more detail, Inner City Press live tweeted the second and last day ( first day here) of jury selection here.

On July 22, Russell was found guilty of interstate threat, and sentencing was set for November 21 at 10 am. Thread here and below.

On August 4 in EDNY, the US asked for an order to the Bureau of Prisons to turn over the $28,000 in R. Kelly's account to it. Letter and draft order on Inner City Press' DocumentCloud here.

On August 10, R. Kelly's lawyer fired back. Full filing on Inner City Press' DocumentCloud here.

On September 9, Judge Ann Donnelly granted the Government's request: "As it stands, the defendant has not paid his $900 special assessment, $100,000 fine or $40,000 JTVA assessment. (ECF No. 326-1.) There is no dispute that these amounts are outstanding; nor is there any dispute that the funds in the defendant’s trust account, totaling $28,328.24, constitute “substantial resources” within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. § 3664(n).3 Thus, the government’s request is authorized by section 3664(n)’s plain terms,...Within ten days of the date of this order, the BOP must issue a check to the Clerk of the Court for the Eastern District of New York for $27,828.24. The check should be made payable to the “Clerk of the Court, EDNY” and reference “U.S. v. Kelly, No. 19-cr-286.” The check should be mailed to: Clerk of the Court Eastern District of New York United States Courthouse 225 Cadman Plaza East Brooklyn, New York 11201."

EDNY case is US v. Robert Sylvester Kelly, a/k/a R. Kelly, EDNY Dkt No. 19-cr-286 (AMD).
