R. Kelly walks; not guilty on all counts

Posted By on Fri, Jun 13, 2008 at 9:00 PM


The verdict is in. On the second day of deliberation, the jury in R. Kelly's child-pornography trial has reached a decision: not guilty on all counts.

Kelly was indicted just over six years ago for videotaping himself engaged in sexual acts with a then-underage girl, his goddaughter. A copy of a videotape was delivered to the Chicago Sun-Times in February 2002, which reporter Jim DeRogatis then handed over to the police. Kelly denied he was the man on the tape, claiming it must be a forgery. The jury agreed, after hearing testimony and evidence that still left a reasonable doubt as to the identities of both parties on the tape.

Somewhere, Dave Chapelle is shaking his head in disbelief.
