Michaels Williams took a plea deal in court where he confessed to setting fire to R. Kelly’s girlfriend Azriel Clary’s SUV. The plea deal was in exchange to have the witness tampering charges against him dismissed. Williams is now facing a minimum 60-month sentence for the charges. “The plea agreement is fair in that the witness tampering charge as it relates to R. Kelly will be dismissed at sentencing,” defense attorney Todd Spodok said.
