R Kelly Verdict
R. Kelly found not guilty of child porn
R. Kelly has been acquitted of child pornography charges. The 41-year-old singer, real name Robert Kelly, long denied charges that he videotaped himself engaging in sex acts with his then-underage goddaughter. Authorities said the female in the video could have been as young as 13 at the time. The jury of nine men and three women deliberated for over seven hours before finding Kelly not guilty on all 14 counts. If found guilty, he could have faced up to 15 years in prison.
