Recently, R. Kelly filed a lawsuit to sue the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center for harsh treatment and putting him on suicide watch when he says he is not ‘suicidal’.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said, “The suicide watch is for his own safety.”
The office continued, “He is a convicted sex offender who has been sentenced to spend the next three decades in prison. In the immediate future, he faces another federal criminal trial in Chicago for charges related to child pornography.”
Kelly’s attorney said, “Nothing occurred during sentencing that came as a surprise to Mr. Kelly. While the conditions of suicide watch may be appropriate for individuals who are truly at risk of hurting themselves, they are cruel and unconstitutional under the Eighth Amendment for individuals who are not suicidal.”
