R. Kelly acquitted of all charges
R. Kelly has been acquitted of all 14 charges in his infamous child-pornography con golden shower case. It took the jurors less than a day of deliberation to find R. not guilty. The AP reports:
Prosecutors had argued that a video tape mailed to the Chicago Sun-Times in 2002 showed Kelly engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13 at the time. Both Kelly, 41, and the now 23-year-old alleged victim had denied they were the ones on the tape. Neither testified during the trial.
R. Kelly thanked the jurors then asked if there was a junior high nearby. He drank way too much water waiting for the verdict, and you know how it goes.
