Bill Cosby Says R. Kelly Got ‘Railroaded’ With Guilty Verdict

Elizabeth Faddis, Washington Examiner, September 29, 2021

Bill Cosby feels that R&B singer R. Kelly was “railroaded” by his recent conviction, predicting the singer might even win an appeal of the verdict.

Andrew Wyatt, a spokesman for Cosby, told TMZ Cosby felt that Kelly had been railroaded and the blame was on attorney Gloria Allred and systemic racism, labeling the conviction an “assault on successful black men.”


Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, was found guilty Monday on charges relating to sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, forced labor, sex trafficking across state lines, and racketeering involving six victims.

Cosby was released from prison on June 30, when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacated his sentence after finding that Cosby had a prior deal with another prosecutor that was supposed to prevent him from being charged criminally. {snip}


“We see the black and white issue,” Wyatt continued, arguing white people accused of crimes seem to get special treatment. {snip}
