R Kelly Trial: R&B Star Awaiting Verdict In Porn Trial
June 13, 2008
The jury in the trial of US R&B star R Kelly has retired to consider its verdict.
Kelly is charged with filming himself having sex with an under age girl, who prosecutors have claimed could be as young as 13.
The R&B star, who denies the charges, faces up to 15 years if found guilty.
The legal arguments in Kelly's trial were concluded by both the prosecution and the defence in court in Chicago yesterday (June 12th).
While the prosecution presented its case more methodically, Kelly's defence used biblical references, alleging that one witness, who claimed to have had a threesome with Kelly and the alleged victim, was “a liar” and “an extortionist."
The girl in the video refused to give evidence during the course of the trial.
