R. Kelly Not Guilty on All Counts Monday, Jun 16 2008 

R.Kelly

The Canadian Press is reporting that a Chicago jury has acquitted R&B singer R. Kelly on all counts at his child pornography trial.

The verdict came six years after the R&B superstar was first charged with videotaping himself having sex with a young girl. Prosecutors had said she was as young as 13 at the time. Kelly had faced a maximum 15 years in prison.

Both Kelly and the now 23-year-old alleged victim had denied they were the ones appearing on the tape, which was played for the jury at the beginning and end of the trial.

The prosecution’s star witness was a woman who said she engaged in three-way sex with Kelly and the girl from the video. Defence attorneys argued the man on the tape didn’t have a large mole on his back, as Kelly does.

A large mole? Maybe it was a small mole 10 years ago and it grew. R. Kelly must be so happy that he’s gonna throw a golden shower party for his defense team.
