Atttorney Gerald Griggs believes the federal government has a strong case against R&B singer R. Kelly. On Tuesday, a judge denied bond for Kelly, considering Kelly "to be a flight risk". The musician was arrested last Friday, after being hit with 13 federal charges, obstruction of justice and child pornography among them.

It was also on Friday that the family of Kelly girlfriend Joycelyn Savage, represented by Griggs, rushed into a news conference that was being held by a Kelly representative in midtown Atlanta. Tim Savage maintained "I just want to see my daughter." Savage yelled at Darrell Johnson, "Where's my daughter?" Johnson, describing himself as a crisis manager, told the media that he has no idea where Savage is located.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to the latest charges against him. The Savage family has released a statement saying the denial of bond for Kelly "offers a glimmer of hope."
