GEORGIA (CelebrityAccess) R. Kelly former manager James Mason has been indicted on one felony count of making terroristic threats, according to the Henry County District Attorney in Georgia.
Mason allegedly threatened to kill the father of one of Kelly’s girlfriends, the DA told TMZ, and the felony charge is punishable by one to 10 years in prison.
Joycelyn Savage’s father, Timothy Savage, went to the police last May to report that Mason called him and said, “I’m gonna do harm to you and your family. When I see you I’m gonna get you. I’m going to f***ing kill you.”
The Henry County Sherriff’s Dept. issued an arrest warrant for Mason, who turned himself in and was released on $10,000 bail.
“Today’s indictment of Henry James Mason, former manager of R. Kelly, further underscores the public accountability that victims and families are pressing on R. Kelly and his team,” attorney for the Savage family Gerald Griggs said. “The Savage family will not be bullied or threatened in their quest to reunite with Joycelyn. Let this be a message to all associates of Robert Sylvester Kelly that the Savages are serious about justice and accountability.”
Joycelyn Savage’s family believe she is being held against her will by Kelly; Joycelyn herself has denied the suggestion.
