Remember that time, something like five years ago, when R Kelly was accused of child pornography? Can’t rememeber? Yeah I had a hard time myself, ‘cause it was really long ago, so how come he only get to have a trial for that now? And justice for all!
Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan (GAWN) has set a September 17th trial date.
The Chicago Sun-Times this afternoon reported that Gaughan spoke with Kelly, his lawyers and the lead prosecutor on the case for more than an hour. After meeting in the judge's chambers, Gaughan announced the trial date and said the two sides have agreed on what questions potential jurors can be asked.
Kelly has pleaded not-guilty to 14 counts of child pornography. He was charged in 2002 and is accused of engaging in videotaped sex acts with an underage girl.
