Hes accused of serious child pornography offences

It has been six years since the Trapped In The Closet singer was arrested and accused of video-taping himself having sex with a girl its claimed was 13.
A videotape of the incident- which allegedly took place sometime between 1998-2000- was sent to a newspaper and passed to police.
R.Kelly faces 14 charges related to the alleged video. His lawyers are asking the judge to postpone the court hearing because the R&B singer has had adverse press reports about him printed.
