A left-wing, George Soros-funded prosecutor in Chicago has decided to take a pass and not prosecute serial rapist R. Kelly despite the many young girls he raped and held as prisoner.
Soros-owned State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, the district attorney for Cook County — the county in which Chicago resides — has announced that she is dropping any further interested in prosecuting the rapist because, she claimed, he already has “extensive sentences” from other convictions.
“Mr. Kelly is looking at the possibility of never walking out of prison again,” Foxx stated, later adding, “We believe justice has been served.”
Foxx also apparently pressured the four accusers who were minors when Kelly abused them to drop their accusations.
“[The decision] is not an indication that we don’t see them,” Foxx claimed, addressing the victims. “I want to acknowledge that when we brought these charges … we brought them because we believed the allegations to be credible and we believed that they deserved the opportunity to have the allegations heard.
“For [the accusers], the process of going through this process was very difficult,” she continued, “and they are pleased with the outcome of the sentence and judgment against Mr. Kelly.”
In 2008, Kelly was acquitted of child porn charges, though prosecutors in Kelly’s 2022 child porn trial alleged that Kelly and his associates had somehow rigged that jury. The jury that convicted Kelly on child porn charges in 2022 acquitted him of rigging the 2008 trial, The Blaze noted.
There is also a pending state case against Kelly in Minnesota, where Kelly is believed to have solicited a minor for sexual purposes and engaged in prostitution with a minor. Prosecutors there have not stated whether they will proceed to trial, though, as the Associated Press noted in its reporting on Kelly, prosecutors at the state level often try cases even after a federal conviction has been secured to guard against freeing a dangerous suspect whose conviction might be overturned on appeal.
