Legal Victory For R Kelly

R Kelly appeared briefly in an Illinois courtroom today where the judge ruled that a child therapist could not testify at his trial on behalf of the prosecution...
R Kelly is charged with video taping himself having sex with a girl who may have been as young as 13 years old at the time. A 20-year-old female witness, the one purported to be in the video, has testified that she is not the one on the tape. Dr. Sharon Cooper, a forensic and developmental pediatrician, was all set to testify that such denials aren't uncommon for child-abuse victims. But Judge Vincent Gaughan denied the request after the defense successfully argued that there was no Illinois precedent for letting someone question a witness's credibility in such a way. Kelly has another court date set for March 12 and his trial, which has been delayed for five years, is scheduled to start May 9. He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

SEND THIS MOFO TO JAIL!

He's not going to jail. Not for this particular underage relationship. Case has been delayed 5 years, the girl(now woman) says it isn't her, and now this. The prosecution can't catch a break. They need evidence to convict and their evidence is shaky at best. Kells is going to take this to trial and beat it. He's one of the few people still selling some records. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this got dismissed. But getting caught up like this in the first place, I wouldn't put it past the Pied Piper getting caught up down the road.

That's alright let God deal with him. It may look like he is getting away with it - Hes not.

Just ask OJ thought he chopped two people up and got away with it in time R will get whats coming to him.

and for the rest who are erasing history with a few dollars ex: Raz well you are the ones that have to live with yourselves and that can't be nice.

Yeah, lets face it; 5 yr trial delay, no victim co-operation, no victim identified (the denial), and the accused has the financial means to buy the best defence team. I'd say all this equals a verdict of 'not guilty'.

Kellz is pissing off (pun intended) too many celebs (DMX & Ne-yo are the latest). Someone is going to talk eventually. I just hope it wont be too late to matter.

Must be nice to have money and be able to do shit on tape and still not be convicted. American Justice - beautiful, aint it?

I find it odd that everyone assumes his guilt - in this case cause let's be real the Pied Piper LOVES the little girls.

But everyone is making this out to be such a huge deal that he might walk on this one. Micheal Jacksons was reported, investigated tried and he was found not guilty after R. Kelly's case. You folks can hang it up, this case has as much chance as a low fat muffin backstage of a fashion show.

I am not condoning what was done, but perhaps we need to let the law work the way it is meant to work. And let's face it this chick (whoever she is) has MUCH more to gain if he is found guilty cause she will be booked on every daytime show from here to Thailand, not to mention what a good book deal she would get if she can parley a good writer into helping her.

I'm just happy y'all mad cause he will make better music if he thinks everyone hates him.
