Predator and Prey: Assault, harassment, and other aggressions in the entertainment industry

I'm definitely hoping the inept defense witnesses help him on his way there. 

That's the kicker: when even his longtime employees are unable to toe the line and deny, deny deny; there is no way the jury can pretend it was all a misunderstanding.  Those guys may never have specifically seen him assault young women, but they clearly knew there was something fishy going on and it seems like a couple of them have grown a conscience and/or are afraid of perjuring themselves.

R Kelly's trial went to the jury. In the closing arguments, Kelly's lawyer actually compared him to MLK, and apparently several people actually said "oh no" out loud in court when they saw what direction the attorney was going.

Not only MLK but Hugh Hefner and Mike Pence. 

I  mean....

Cannick also described Kelly’s affinity for younger females as normal. “He prefers, in some instances, the May-to-October relationship. Older man, somewhat younger woman. Some people just like it that way,” Cannick said. “Some people also just like kinky sex.”

It is not funny.. it really isn't... but I was reading this account of the lawyer's closing statement laughing my ass off.

At this point you have to wonder between the half-assed witnesses for the defense and this tone-deaf, quite frankly hysterical closing... are they trying to throw this case?

Yes the summary of that closing argument was a wild ride and unintentionally hilarious. I can't tell if they're that inept and/or desperate or they're intentionally throwing it, but it has to be one of the most bizarre defenses I've ever read about for a celebrity who has the money for good attorneys.

I'm not going to read what R Kelly's lawyer said in his closing argument, but I really hope that it's not as ridiculous as everyone is making it sound. It's not good if R Kelly gets a new trial because he can prove attorney negligence.

Was just coming to check if R. Kelly's case had gone to the jury.   Wonder how long they will be out.

In other predator news, Prince Andrew has conceded he has been served.   Details over in the Royals thread.
