R. Kelly acquitted of all charges

June 13th, 2008 // 68 Comments

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.

    Race had nothing whatsoever to do with this verdict. Stardom on the other hand…

  2. THAT_GIRL_JENN

    I AM A BLACK WOMAN BUT TRUTH BE TOLD – I CAN’T DEFEND BLACK PPL.

    THEY ARE A MESS!

    I TRIED REALLY I DID, BUT I CAN’T REPRESENT THE ENTIRE RACE ALL THE TIME WHEN I AM LIKE THE ONLY ONE ACTUALLY WORKING HARD (NOT REALLY BUT JUST NOT ENOUGH OF US TO MAKE A GOOD IMPRESSION)

    I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS A COMPLIMENT OR AN INSULT THAT PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS SAYING SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF “YOUR DIFFERENT” UM, REALLY?

    AND I CAN’T STAND BLACK MEN HITTING ON ME ALL THE TIME.

    GHETTO BLACK MEN WILL NOT LEAVE ME THE F*CK ALONE AND I DON’T GET IT, I DID NOT GO TO SCHOOL, HAVE BRACES AS A KID, WEAR NICE CLOTHES TO BE HIT ON BY SOMEONE WHO LOOKS LIKE R . KELLY AND SELLS CD’S OUT HIS TRUNK

  3. THAT_GIRL_JENN-

    You should try being an individual its less stressful.

    I get that “you’re* different”line all the time. Skin color/race does not determine personality.

    Its not the 50′s you no longer have to stay on your side of the tracks.

    R.Kelly should be jailed this case has nothing to do with race. Money and fame can buy you out of anything.

    Sweetness. One more step toward legal sex with 15 year olds. BOO YA!….a win for us Pedi lovers. Now I have to get back to wanking to that orgy of toddlers. God I love Saturday nights.

  5. Stupid

    If you are black, your odds of getting into law school are much more favorable. If you don’t understand how it is actually a good thing (or if you take offense) then you are very stupid and I hope to never have you as my public defeneder.

    People who make really nasty racist comments are people who have chosen to stay in a “middle-class” (ha) mindset.

    There is no need to be angered by others’ ignorance.
    I think that it is great that R. Kelly had this victory. I am impressed and want to know more about his attorneys.

    People comment as if they actually know, when only those involved really know. Am I the only one who has been in a situation where circumstances indicated I was guilty, when I honestly was not?

  6. This really is a sad example of what money and some great attorneys can do…
    I only wish people, truly innocent people had access to this kind of defense

    Why is it that this has turned into an argument about race? Thas NOTHING to do with NI88ERS OR CRACKERS or Kim Fucking Kardashian or white chicks who fuck black guys or white people getting loans! WHAT THE FUCK??? Jesus, FOCUS people! A serious injustice has been done here, ala OJ.

    This is a sick sad case about a man with a bunch of money who took advantage of YOUNG LITTLE GIRLS. He RAPED them, whether you fucktards want to say he had their permission or not. Would you say he had permission if it were YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR NIECE, YOUR LITTLE SISTER??? Just because she didn’t testify against him, doesn’t mean she LIKED it. How the fuck can people say shit like that. This girl is now a WOMAN and she has no interest in dredging her OWN name through the MUD just to rehash and embarrass herself enough for him to get what? A little probation? Some counseling? I don’t blame her. She’s moved on. She is trying to make sure the people she loves as an adult don’t have to live the stigma for something she did as an impressionable and ill-guided CHILD.

    Just goes to show, famous people can get away with anything.

  9. Raven

    illflux, you are right.

    Unless you go against the Federal Government, the rich will always walk.

  10. Hmph!

    I think that in this hypersexualized media environment, teenagers have become sluttier. They get their sex ed from porn. That girl WANTED to be there. Why did her parents allow her to attend an R.Kelly concert alone? Why weren’t they there to pick her up at a decent hour after the concert instead of allowing her to be running wild at hotel after parties where she could be fucked by R.Kelly and pissed on? Seriously, parents need to get a hold of their children, teach them morals, values, and acceptable behaviors, and not let the media influence them inappropriately.

    As for Kelly getting away with it–this is America. Rich people rarely go down for anything. Statutory rape laws exist, sure, but not for the rich and famous. Anyhow, I don’t like the term “rape” in that law. Especially since the teens often aren’t forced. It should be more “sexual concourse with a minor”.

    I’m off to YouTube now to watch me a little Dave Chappelle parody known as “Piss on You”…

    That’s fucked. I propose we all boycott R Kelly, and his music, and pray that he drops off the face of this Earth as fast as he can. Let’s not support a pedophile and his shitty music.

  13. farty_mcshitface

    well, enough of the black stuff-
    he bought the girl off long ago. shortly after the tape was done, he hired her father for some mystery job (professional hanger-on) and sent the girl off to europe so she wouldn’t have to testify. i don’t know if she has even returned since.
    this isn’t the first time he has had legal issues involving underage girls.

    R.Kelly is a waste of human being, the worst part is that he has 2 daughters!! This shows that money can get you out, not the colour of your skin. Nice to know what KKK’s favourite gossip’s website is

    You wrote: “I COULD OF TOLD YOU THAT ALL THE PEOPLE ON THIS SITE WERE WHITE ”

    I don’t know what got you into law school (and if you really did get accepted somewhere, you should pay attention now), but it certainly wasn’t your mastery of the English language.

    Anyone could HAVE told you that you don’t write the same way you speak. Might help to use that lesson in a brief along the way.

    If you type the word n*gger, you are a racist. I don’t care what color you are. You are words on a screen and if yo type the word racist, you are RACIST WORDS ON A SCREEN.
