R. Kelly is back in court 14 years later for sexually assaulting a teenage girl

Fourteen years after a jury shockingly acquitted R. Kelly in a high-profile child pornography case, prosecutors will get a second crack at the disgraced Grammy winner.

The R&B singer, 55, is due to appear in federal court in Chicago on Monday to begin what is in many ways a rehash of his 2008 state trial, in which a shocking video he filmed himself sexually assaulting and urinating on a 14. A 14-year-old girl was prosecutors’ “Exhibit 1.”

However, this time the victim is expected to testify.

Among the most serious charges Kelly faces is conspiracy to obstruct justice by rigging the trial in 2008, including paying and threatening the victim to ensure she did not testify.

The fallen “I Believe I Can Fly” singer and icon of ’90s pop stardom was slapped with 30 years in prison in June by a federal judge in Brooklyn for a 2021 sentencing on charges he sexually abused women and minor girls and boys during the decade.

Testimony from the 2008 victim, now 30 and referred to in court records only as “minor 1,” is expected to be crucial.

Kelly will also stand trial for allegedly luring four other people to have sex with him when they were minors. All are also expected to testify.
