R. Kelly

In Chicago, the federal trial of R.Kelly got started on Monday. The defendant sat in court and watched the long, drawn out process of jury selection.

The judge quizzed more than 60 potential jurors what they know about R.Kelly and this case of child pornography plus obstruction of justice. The judge denied the defense’s request to bar any juror that watched Lifetime’s damning docu-series, Surviving R.Kelly.

The judge dismissed half the panel. Many of them admitted to seeing the sordid series and believing they could not be unbiased.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys will get their shot today to narrow the field even further. It’s possible that opening arguments will be heard today. (Chicago Tribune)
