    R. Kelly acquitted on all counts

    Jury acquits R. Kelly of all counts

    By MICHAEL TARM 4 hours ago


    CHICAGO (AP) R. Kelly was acquitted of all charges Friday after less than a day of deliberations in his child pornography trial, ending a six-year ordeal for the R&B superstar.


    Kelly dabbed his face with a handkerchief and hugged each of his four attorneys after the verdict not guilty on all 14 counts was read. The Grammy award-winning 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.


    "All I heard (from Kelly) while those 14 verdicts were being read was 'Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus,'" said Sam Adam Jr., one of his attorneys.


    Prosecutors had argued that a video tape mailed to the Chicago Sun-Times in 2002 showed Kelly engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13 at the time. Both Kelly, 41, and the now 23-year-old alleged victim had denied they were the ones on the tape. Neither testified during the trial.


    "Robert said all along that he believed in our system and he believed in God and that when all the facts came out in court, he would be cleared of these terrible charges," according to a statement from his publicist, Allen Mayer. "But he never dreamed it would take six and a half years. This has been a terrible ordeal for him and his family and at this point all he wants to do is move forward and put it behind him."
    Wow, talk about being made of teflon.

    Wow, that's shocking. Hooray for being star struck?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Did you confuse this place for the MENSA message board?

    Calm down, Mrs. Kelly.

    His acquittal is proof that God either does not exist, or is on vacation, and did not take a Blackberry.

    Wow, what another mature comment. Apparently the remedial education class just got out and the short bus is now boarding passengers.

    Dude screws a minor and gets away with it. I think calling him a douche is kind. Perhaps a pedophile is too mature a word but completely appropriate.

    I had to comment again. So calling R Kelly a douche is immature but referring to someone as taking a short bus is mature. Dude, why don't you just drop down to their level and call them retarded. Your veiled comments are doing just that, poking fun at the retarded and that isn't just immature, it isn't cool either.

    He's just joined the Micheal Jackson club, as far as I'm concerned.

    Just for the record a douche serves a useful purpose, R. Kelly does not.

    Richard Cranium,

    Strong work! I love the fact that you express your concerns about a post that lacks maturity by making fun of Special Education students, at the same time, you're too much of a chicken s to just say what you're tap dancing around.

    YOU LOSE! You win NOTHING!
