R. Kelly loses Bid to Ban Certain Jurors

On Monday jury selection for R. Kelly's Chicago child pornography trial began with R. already losing a very important battle over jurors...

According to reports the judge denied R. Kelly's request to ban any juror who has seen the Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly," calling it inflammatory.  

The judge denied the request saying that the series aired years ago and that it wouldn't make sense to prohibit someone from serving if they'd seen only part of the series. 

Out of the potential jury pool 9 people admitted they'd seen at least some of the documentary while 70 people had not seen any of it.
