R. Kelly’s legal team is appealing his conviction for sexual crimes in a federal New York case.
According to Hip Hop DX, the singer’s lawyers want his nine federal counts of RICO charges, and sexual misconduct crimes reversed.
His team is disputing the “burden of proof” that sentenced him to 30 years in prison.
The lawyers are also accusing the judge of unfair evidence use and jury selection.
In addition, his team claims some jurors were already biased against him.
