According to the New York Times, Judge Harry Leinenweber of the US District Court has officially set the trial date for September 13, 2021. Kelly, who is in custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago, is charged with child pornography and disability. Although there is now an official start date for the process, Leinenweber noted that it is still "not set in stone" due to the unpredictable nature of the global coronavirus pandemic and the lockdowns that followed.

Prosecutors in Northern Illinois said it would take them three weeks to produce evidence against Kelly, who has brought charges against him and two former employees, to his 2008 Cook County trial for child pornography by paying witnesses and victims rules to get them to change their stories.
Kelly's federal trial in Chicago will begin five months after his trial in New York for extortion (allegedly "Kelly" and his associates ran a criminal enterprise that recruited women and underage girls into illegal sexual contact, then isolated and threatened them to bring them under control hold and prevent you are not allowed to go to the authorities. ”), which is to begin on April 7, 2021. The 53-year-old artist faces a prison sentence of up to 20 years on charges in New York. If convicted in Chicago, it will potentially add even more decades to conviction.
Due to the global pandemic, much of the trials in Chicago were canceled this spring, but resumed in August with new security measures and protocols.
Regarding the pandemic, Kelly's legal team has tried unsuccessfully on several occasions to secure the release of their client. His attorney Steven Greenberg recently requested his client's release due to the coronavirus and an attack on Kelly that took place in the correctional facility this summer. However, Eastern District of New York Judge Ann Donnelly ruled that summer that Kelly “did not find compelling reasons for his release. There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the MCC in Chicago. "
