Age Ain't Nothing But A Number, Take 4: R. Kelly Found Not Guilty Of Child Pornography

The long strange prosecution of R. Kelly finally ended today in a Chicago courtroom, with jurors finding the R&B superstar not guilty of all 14 counts of child pornography in connection with a sex tape he allegedly made of himself and a young girl who might have been as young as 14.  I've written before about the problems with the prosecution's case, ranging from the alleged victim refusing to testify to the prosecution only having a copy of a copy of a copy of the videotape which, while admissible, was likely given little weight by the jury.  As I learn more about the jury's reasoning, I will likely have more to report.
