Retired-Prison Employee Accused Of Leaking R. Kelly Info To Blogger

A retired Bureau of Prisons employee is accused of leaking information about singer R. Kelly to an entertainment blogger while he was locked up in Chicago’s downtown federal jail. Federal authorities sought a judge’s permission last year to search the worker’s computer following a report that blogger TashaK had shared information that was available to BOP employees. Records show the employee had accessed Kelly’s records more than 150 times in 2019. No charges have been filed in the case. Kelly faces federal racketeering charges in Brooklyn and federal child pornography and obstruction of justice charges in Chicago.
