I'm Very Upset About this !!!!

A Chicago jury has acquitted R. Kelly on all counts at his child pornography trial.

The verdict came six years after the R&B superstar was first charged with videotaping himself having sex with a young girl. Prosecutors had said she was as young as 13 at the time.

The Grammy award-winning singer dabbed his face with a handkerchief and hugged each of his four attorneys after the verdict was read. The singer had faced 15 years in prison if convicted.

Minutes later, surrounded by bodyguards, he left the courthouse without comment. Dozens of fans screamed and cheered as he climbed into a waiting SUV.

Both Kelly and the now 23-year-old alleged victim had denied they were the ones appearing on the tape, which was played for the jury at the beginning and end of the trial.

The prosecution's star witness was a woman who said she engaged in three-way sex with Kelly and the girl from the video. Defense attorneys argued the man on the tape didn't have a large mole on his back, as Kelly does. read full story

Yea when I read the verdict I was appalled. Kelly has had a sick desire for young girls for a very long time now. Come on, look at the marriage to Aaliyah back in the day. This is what happens though when you have money. Sadness! We all know he paid that girl and her family off.

Kelly got rich mans justice. This is just another example of the judicial system devaluing women.

What bothers me is that countless women are supporting him and men in general seem to feel that justice was served...this is BS
