R. Kelly Calls Herpes Related Charges Unfair


Last year embattled musician R. Kelly's New York sex trafficking and racketeering case was updated to include charges that he exposed his sexual partners to the Herpes virus without telling them he was infected [click here if you missed that]. 

Kelly wants those charges dismissed...

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the disgraced singer's legal team is demanding several charges relating to sex trafficking and racketeering be dismissed.
Kelly takes issue with the indictment including claims he exposed two of his victims with Herpes. The government says he did this in March 2020.
However, Kelly is arguing for all Herpes related charges to be thrown out. He claims the New York State Dept. of Health and the World Health Organization both say the STD is not an "acute, bacterial venereal disease."
His lawyer writes, "The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies Herpes (HSV-1 and HSV-2) as viruses, not an acute, bacterial venereal disease such as syphilis or gonorrhea.3 As a result of the WHO classification that herpes is not an acute, bacterial venereal disease such as syphilis or gonorrhea, therefore the Court should dismiss those counts which are related to the PHL."
His lawyers say it would be unfair for the government to be allowed to move forward with the claims.

Kellz also wants any charges more than a decade old thrown out.

I had to cut toxic people out of me life guys. It's been a little over a year and I haven't spoken to my sister. I wish her well and a positive life, but I've never felt better in my life. My self esteem is better and I'm not nervous when the phone rings fearing it's her on the other end. Cutting off toxic people, even family has been great for me this so far.

@12:04 here's to cutting toxic people. If I had stayed with cutting my sister off before she ran my pockets I'd be 100k richer. My life would be so different if I had not been so hungry for her love. My father was a basket case and used anyone he came into contact with and I cut him off, stuck with it, then he died. Do I feel bad? Big nope -- bye nigga! Stick to your guns and don't open the door back up to any nonsense.

Nasty mothafucka!!!! He was handing out herpes around to women like breath mints. I wonder who he's fucking all up, in and around that prison? Hope they have condoms because I know he's fucking some men up in there.

I don't understand his claim? Victims sue ex partners for failing to disclose their AIDS/HIV status to them all the time - and both AIDS / HIV are autoimmune *viruses*. We are currently battling the COVID (SARS respiratory virus) and it's affecting public health, so, why is Kelly allowed to make these claims when exposure to a virus is a *Publix Health* issue and can be litigated in court? WTF?!

@230pm

Your post is so well written. About AIDS/HIV.....they're not autoimmune diseases. They're diseases which cause one to be immunocompromised. Diseases in the autoimmune arena are lupus, RA, UC, MS.....I'm sure there are more.

So he indirectly admitted to having Herpes. This dude is all kinds of nasty.
When will he ever see the light of day?

He showed no mercy or concern for these "children", so why should he be given any? Guilty as charged, Sir.

Bailiff! come get this man out of my sight!
