Judge Allows R. Kelly Sex Tape To Go Public

by at . Comments

The Associated Press reports that a Chicago judge is allowing the public and media to view the videotape that prosecutors say shows R. Kelly having sex with an underage girl.

Judge Vincent Gaughan said Thursday that he saw no overarching interest in banning the tape, which law enforcement officials allege proves their case against the singer, from public view.

"This is the whole crux and linchpin of the case. If there was no tape, we wouldn't have a case," Gaughan said.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 14 counts of child pornography. Prosecutors claim the tape was made shot between January 1998 and October 2000, when the girl may have been as young as 13.

Both the defense and prosecution had asked Gaughan to limit video viewing to only jurors, the lawyers and the judge himself. The video, they say, is lewd enough to seriously embarrass the girl, now 21. Prosecutors say they do not plan to call the girl as a witness. A trial date has not been set.

Allegations of Kelly's sexual activity with underage girls go as far back as 1991, when several claimed to have had sex with him. However, none of the those reports reached the publicity of the 2002 release of this tape, in which Kelly urinates on the girl and allegedly commits numerous other sexual acts. That's real classy, R. Enjoy prison.

R.kelly did have sex with her because I saw the tape on limewire . So he didn't rape her but had sex and she agreed to it because he even paid her to suck his dick

R kelly did not rape her. That lil girl should have been up front about her age and should have been watched by her mother. this wasn't a one occasion time so she knew what she was doing only because she wanted it to be that way.

It is illegal to have sex with a minor in the united states. I don't care who he is! If he is guilty, he should not be allowed to get away with it. We have laws for a reason and he shouldn't be exempt from them because of his occupation. You don't know how this man is in real life, all you know is the man who is portrayed on the screen or through his music.
