Bill Cosby felt that R. Kelly was treated unfairly in his trial for racketeering and sex trafficking.
The admitted sex offender only had supportive thoughts for Kelly.
Cosby, who was convicted in April 2018 of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand but released last June on a technicality, disagreed with the outcome of Kelly’s trial.
“The guy was convicted.”
Those were Cosby’s thoughts, echoed by his representative, Andrew Wyatt, to TMZ.

Wyatt also told the New York Post that Cosby believes Robert Sylvester Kelly “was screwed” and “wasn’t going to take a break”, pointing a finger at Kelly’s defense.
“The deck was against Robert,” Wyatt told the Mail. “His constitutional rights were seriously abused. I don’t know anywhere else, except in this country in the United States, that a documentary can bring criminal charges against someone. “
Wyatt explained that due to Kelly’s lack of “resources and means”, he could have gotten better lawyers than the hackers who did not “humanize” him.
He added: “No one fought hard for him.”
A jury found the I believe I can fly singer guilty of all nine charges earlier this week.
Among the acts for which Kelly was convicted are illegal sexual relations with minors, sexual exploitation of minors, bribery, coercion and forced labor.
Kelly could face a minimum of 10 years, and even life, behind bars. His sentence is in May.
