R.Kelly Aquitted Of Child Pornography Charges

Embattled R&B singer R.Kelly was found not guilty on all counts of child pornography, the Associated Press is reporting.Kelly was charged with 14 counts of child pornography and could have faced up to 15 years in prison.A jury, however, found the singer not guilty, six years after he first came under fire when a sex tape was discovered by a Chicago newspaper.The infamous tape allegedly featured Kelly performing lewd sexual acts with an underage female. Various witness identified the singer, the teen girl, and the location the sex tape was filmed when it was screened in the court room. But now Kelly is free from all legal burdens surrounding the tape.The alleged victim at the center of the controversy is now 23-years-old, but had long claimed she was not the purported woman on the tape. Relatives of the woman testified in court that it was her, as did neighbors. At the time the tape was recorded, prosecutors pushed she could have been as young as 13. But in the end it was not enough.A second woman, who prosecutors trotted out as their star witness, took the stand in an emotional testimony and revealed she engaged in sexual activities together with Kelly and the underage woman. But Kelly’s defense dismissed the notions and argued the man on the tape did not have a large mole on his back as did the singer.Kelly’s camp argued for some time that the tape was digitally altered and he was not a participant in the act. They claimed computer-aided technology was used to distort the singer’s image and the tape was a conspiracy against Kelly. At one point Kelly’s brother was also alleged to have been the man on the tape.The jury only took two days to deliberate to reach their verdict. Along with the mole on the singer’s back, another key issue was the motive of Lisa Van Allen, the star witness. The defense accused Van Allen of attempted to export upwards of $30, 000 from Kelly in order to not testify.—Jayson Rodriguez

    • Oshanae

      Yes death of Aaliyah was heartbreaking but as far as the rest ru serious mentioning her death and his freedom in the same sentence she dies and he set free that all I am going to say…..WTF

  • Jack

    if the court thinks he’s innocent and they’ve seen the tape and the testimonies and all the other evident then i believe it guilty until proven innocent right jay-z featuring r kelly

  • big skiz

    fuq r kelly hes a piece of shit. pissin on people, fuqin lito gilrs. what kind of shit is that. stupid ass jurors. you know somebody was paid off. fuq this dum nigga. all he sings is bullshit anyhow. hope somebody milests his sik ass, fuq him this shit makes me mad.

  • jojo

    The same way the MLB has blacklisted Barry Bonds, the music industry should do the same to this fucker. The legal system may not have effectively punished the man, or even deterred R. Kelly from having sex with another underage girl, but RAPPERS, LABEL EXEC’S AND OTHERS NEED TO STOP HAVING THIS FUCKER ON SONGS, LABELS, MOVIES, TELEVISION, ETC. When a guy like R Kelly has 5 rappers appearing on a remix track, essentially the rappers excuse and condone his actions.

    • $ykotic

      U hit the nail on the head family. But the US is about capitalism, so expect a resurrection
      of Kells’ career.

      Them lawyer fees are a b*tch!

      And Kells STOP MESSING WITH THEM YOUNG BREEZYS!

    People need to realize that most of these “children” are lying about their age. It is a big world out there and just about 80% of children at the age of 12, if not younger, are having sex. Children are having children. Its not all Kells, it takes 2 to do the d— thing. Come on, use your head. But I am glad he’s off, whether he did or not, he shouldn’t be blamed for all it. Children do lie.

  • The Spaniard

    “lol, R. Kelly is a lucky nigga. How the fuck did he get off when every body and there mama knows that was his ass in that tape.”

    No complaining witness + no age verification + no confession = NOT GUILTY.

    The only thing “money” had to do with it is that he could buy an, apparently, competent defense team.

    With that said, it’s should be be plainly obvious that R. Kelly likes teen girls. That’s strange but…fuck it. As long as he doesn’t kidnap them I say go for it Mitchell.

  • Big Chops

    Who is really surprised by this!!!! But what the fuck, this was clearly him on that tape pissin on that little girl.

  • D Lux

    lol Innocent until proven Guilty is actually opposite “guilty until proven innocent da way yall actin.” He is found not guilty n yall still saying he did it, i mean R Kelly could get any gurl he want so why would he do dat? he didn’t n datz why he was found not guilty

    • jburg

      Kobe could have gotten any gurl he wanted too, that don’t mean he didn’t fuck the bitch in the ass. I don’t think he raped the gurl I am just saying. If you saw the tape then you know damned well it was that nigga Kells licking that bitch’s ass like it was a bowl of ice cream!!! I will never purchase anything with the muthfuckas name on it again. Him and Micheal should be ashamed of themselves, the music industry should shut him out for good.

  • changeman

    See I knew it. This shit wouldn’t hold up in court because they took too long to confront it and by than it was like, well the girls older now and well can’t do shit about the past plus. that tape could have had any body on it.

  • BX POSTER CHILD

    IM GLAD R. KELLY BEAT THE TRIAL GOOD THING 4 HIM NOW HE CAN GO BACK 2 MAKIN GOOD MUZIK. BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE.

  • http://xxlMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

    This is bullshit!! The nigga did it!!! If it had been a little white girl in the tape they would have thru the book at him!!!! To the cats on here supporting him you have to wonder: What if it was your little sister or daughter getting disrespecting and urinated on? I don’t know about yall but I would kill the dude.

  • Paulie

    Great! I think he gonna marry an 11 years old girl to celebrate!! And justice won’t find something wrong with that!! Fucker!

  • http://www.myspace.com/mc585 MC

    BE A CELEbrity and you don’t get time in jail…

  • a few facts

    1. he married aaliyah when she was 15
    2. he has been accused of this several times before-most notably several teenage girls confirming that he goes back to his old highschool in chicago and picks up FRESHMAN girls and takes them home after he gives talks to each class..he talks to the classes in reverse age order ie freshman class last and then leaves with one or two of the freshman girls
    3. after his last serious accusation in which he bareley get off for taking one of these girls home he releases a song with the chorus “kelly, not guilty…i got all my MOMMIES” (the 14 year old girl who accused him of the charges goes into therapy for several years because of the taunting in the song etc., has a mental breakdown because she doesn’t see how he was allowed to throw it in her face like that…comes out as a twenty something year old adult giving detailed desciptions of kellys actions, his approaches and his mentality, claims she’ll spend the rest of her life trying to get him on civil charges with NO MONEY OR REWARD OF ANY KIND as part of the case but was unable to find any high powered attornies to take the civil case because she wasn’t seeking any money
    4. during a “60 minute”s interview whith ed bradley when asked directly if it was him in the tape etc. he responded “now i’ve done some things i aint proud of…but i can’t just sit up here and confess all my sins to you”
    5. after the tape came out he began refereing to himself as the “pied piper of r&b”..yes PIED PIPER…as in PERTER PAN who takes all the little kids away in the story…

    6. a few months ago the couple who had been his A&R team for the last 15 years who has stuck by him through all of his controverseys and allegations (george and regina daniels whom he thanks on the step in the name of love song which was the first one rhe released after the sex video was made public ) just quit because they found out that kelly had been having an “innappropriate relationship” with thier duaghter who was a college freshman, and who kelly had known since she was 5 years old

    who was the guy in the video then? the touch screen home entertainment system being used in the video retailed for $300,000 at the time the video was made…hmmm, i guess there is a guy in chicago who looks just llike kelly who is also a millionaire and who also has a fetish for young, young girls…small world eh?

    • Rex Banner

      blah blah blah, just be happy he is free lol the girl was not being raped, is it r.kelly’s fault she was a ho and stupid to do it? a lot of high school girls are hoes and they arent victims they know what they are doing. if she was raped then thats another story but thats not the case here so fuck it

  • a few facts

    ps in 2006 his brother (who to this very day is a homeless man singing for money in front of lees liquor store in thier hometown southside chigago) claims that kelly offered him $50,000 and a record deal to say he was the guy in the tape…

  • 239allday

    The alleged victim was a damn jump-off. Thats the only reason kells was aquitted. The jury knew the nigga Kells was the one on tape. The jury prolly thoght if he didn’t do it, somebody else was going to. Dont act like yall dont be lookin at them high school girls when you in the mall. Half of em hoes anyway. I’m 19 by the way, not a pervert.

  • GI JOE
