R. Kelly hires Bill Cosby’s lawyer to appeal sex trafficking conviction

What do R Kelly and Bill Cosby have in common, one thing for sure is now the same lawyer. R Kelly is seeking legal help of Bill Cosby’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean to appeal his racketeering and sex trafficking conviction.

The Chicago Tribune reported that his new lawyer is not wasting anytime getting to work either. She has already  registered with the district courts in Brooklyn and has made her intention clear to push for a new trial for the disgraced R&B singer and has already asked for a two-month extension on post-trial motions that are due Monday.

“I am becoming increasingly concerned with how the government is abusing the RICO statute in order to plead around the statute of limitations and essentially put people’s entire lives on trial,” Bonjean told the Tribune. “It’s becoming a formula for the government. You have a right to defend yourself against specific allegations.”
