R. Kelly’s Lawyers Asks to Leave Defense Team Before Sex Abuse Trial

R. Kelly’s lawyer, Michael Leonard joins BNC to discuss his recent departure from the case. Leonard and attorney Steve Greenberg requested a federal judge to remove them from the singer’s legal defense team.

“Our reasons for withdrawal are significant and it is impossible, in our belief, for us to be able to continue to properly represent Mr. Kelly under the current circumstances,” according to their letter to U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly.

“In general, as a trial lawyer, you have to have a comfort level that the case will be tried in the manner in which you want it to be tried, by the people that you want to try it,” Leonard tells BNC.

All this and more on “BNC Live.”
