I haven't followed one little bit of this trail, so I am truly relying on a jury to determine if this man is guilty or innocent.
HOWEVER, it would be nice if the newspapers realize that even though the guy is from the area, he IS NOT important to the area.

Why did MTV News ask an ACTOR how special effects are done? He has no f-ing clue. That might be the worst job reporting EVER.

Way to go - Solid "reporting" Trib - you finally got around to reading the story posted a week or so ago in Slate magazine. And you want to know why MSM is losing out to the blogs.

Actually, he produced the movie, so he would know how long it took his team to make it. Granted, it's still a stupid article.

R Kelly and his attorneys are out of gas. This has been a long time in the making for some of us who already knew this freak was a pervert. and child molester. Now this little man defense, is truly the cake. He actually believes that someone doctored the tapes to make it look like Kelly. What a crock, R Kelly is the poster child for Child Abuse and Molestation. I hope the jury does the right thing and find this freak Guilty and tell him and his little man defense go straight to hell and serve his time in prison and label his little man a sexual predator. They say you're innocent until proven guilty, well he's been guilty a long time. FREAK

I have to disagree with most of the posters who think it's looking bad for Kelly. I foresee another O.J. verdict coming. Kelly (like OJ) is guilty as sin, but his money will buy enough 'expert' witnesses to confuse the jury, that he will walk free.

I doubt he will be found guilty.

Some family members say its her.

Some say it isnt.

the family members who say its her brought no proof that it is her.

this case will either end in a hung jury or not guilty verdict.

too much has been said, but nothing has been proven from both sides (prosecution and defense).

That is it? The prosecutor's spent almost two weeks presenting evidence, brining in witnesses and experts to prove R. Kelly's defense and the defense only spends 4 days trying to prove his innonence? WOW! Something is wrong here. It sounds like R. Kelly did not get his monies worth. If I was on the defense team, I would have brought in expert after expert proving that the prosecution's claim were false. Once mole expert stating it was not there? I would have had at least four or five to prove that he did not have a mole.

The defense's agruments were very weak...especially the "little man" defense which made the defense look stupid!

At this point, I can only assume R. Kelly will be found guilty.

Call the FBI in, it looks like someone on the jury got bribed.

Well now we know he's guilty. If I didn't do it, I would testify and tell the judge and jury!!!! For all of you idiots that stuck up for this freak, you owe everyone an apology.

They are now writing the appeal notice - they are going to need it. I can't believe how much he has paid these guys over the years to have this shoddy defense.

First, I am not trying to be rude, but you need to learn proper English.

Second, in regards to your comment, I am not a hater nor a lover. I have never met R. Kelly and therefore can not judge the man. Even if he has been convicted, I can still not judge him since I have not personally met him.

What my issue is, is with all the money R. Kelly has, why were there not a better defense? Why did his defense team not bring in ten expert witnesses or even try and show how an alteration of the video could have been done. R. Kelly is a millionaire, if not a billinaire, and he had one of the crappiest defense teams I have ever seen. FOUR DAYS AND THEY REST? What is up with that? The prosecutors spent two weeks proving their case and the defense spends four days? The defense should have spent at least two weeks, if not more, to prove the defense wrong.

I truly feel the jury will see through this defense, because of the lack of defense he had.
