Does RKelly Really Believe he Can Fly?

Closing arguments are set to begin on Thursday, June 12, 2008 in the RKelly Child Pornography trial. On this past Tuesday, the prosecution and the defense both rested their case. RKelly explained to the judge his decision not to testify. This would be the only statement he would make throughout the entire 6-week trial.
The case is very simple (in case you've been hiding under a rock and are clueless to what this is all about). Robert Sylvester Kelly is accused of having videotaped himself having sex with and urinating on an underage girl of about age 13 years approximately 10 years ago.

Kelly and the alleged victim maintain that it is not they who are the stars of this production. The prosecution brought forth witnesses (friends,schoolmates and family of the young lady and former business associates and lovers of Kelly's) who testified that it is without a shadow of a doubt RKelly and the young lady that are depicted in the raunchy 27 minute video-tape that has been shown to the court observers and jurors.

Kelly has been charged in 14-counts of child pornography and each count carries a 4-15 year sentence. RKelly only needs to be found guilty of one count in order to be sent to prison.

Many people in Chicago believe that RKelly is guilty but will not serve any time in prison because he is RKelly. Some of the testimony in the case was extremely damaging, especially from former lovers who testified that RKelly frequently video taped sex acts between him and other ladies.

If RKelly really believes he can fly, then he needs to spread his wings and fly right out of that courtroom, because from my window on the second floor--his situation looks bleak.
