Kelly's Brooklyn trial is set for early August. He has been behind bars since July 2019.

Greenberg said the trial would likely last six weeks... but Kelly's Chicago trial is due to start in September. "It is an entirely different set of discovery," Greenberg said. "It is immense. And I just don't see how we could do it. Right now we're having a hard enough time getting ready for the New York trial."

The Brooklyn indictment charges Kelly with racketeering alleging his staff, including managers, bodyguards, drivers and other employees, helped him recruit women and girls for sex. 

The Chicago indictment charges Kelly with child pornography and obstruction of justice. 

Kelly denies all allegations against him.
