I am a criminal defense practitioner here in the Chicag area. It is likely that Mr. Kelly will be convicted for some offense. The Federal Sentencing Guidelines take the amount of the theft/fraud into account in determining the appropriate sentence. The sentence will be substantial, if convicted. The ruling in the detention hearing is indicative of the strength of the Government case and the Court's belief in Kelly's risk to flee. The question then is "What will ultimately happen to the Puerto Cancun Project?".
