A Chicago judge has set a trial date for April 2020 in Kelly's federal case.
Kelly is accused of child pornography and obstruction of justice in the state of Illinois, where he is currently being detained.
According to reports, the trial is estimated to last three weeks. Kelly also faces charges in New York and Minnesota - so the scheduled date is subject to change.
Kelly has been moved to general population, and according to a recorded phone call - the inmates love him.
"If I go to population… I'm just up on everybody and everybody's up on me, and I'm trying to figure out how to trust that or whatever," Kelly reportedly said during a Jul. 19 call.
"You know, and that's why, I was like, hmmm, too many people up on you and I done seen too many movies, you know, and it's just, and then I'm so popular here, it's like yeah man," Kelly allegedly said.
The disgraced singer was moved to general population after his attorney complained that his stay in solitary confinement was "cruel and unusual punishment" and that he had "no meaningful interaction with other humans."
