This afternoon jurors on the R. Kelly case watched the sex tape that got him in all of this trouble. You know the details of the tape, no need to go there. As the movie played some jurors reportedly fidgeted in their seats. R. Kelly watched it along with them, occasionally shaking his head and leaning over to talk to his lawyer.
What was he saying? Likely joking.. look at that limp noodle.
R. Kelly’s lawyer, Sam Adam Jr., used the tape as proof of his main defense: R. Kelly isn’t the man on the tape. Adam showed the jury 48 pictures of scars and birthmarks on R. Kelly’s body; focusing tightly on a dime-sized mole on his back. Adam said it’s a mark he’s had since childhood. Zipping back to the tape, he asked the jury to find it on the man in the video. It’s not there.
“If There’s No Mole, You Gotta Let Him Go”
Okay, he didn’t say that, but he should have. Take a cue from the late Johhny Cochran, catchphrases work.
The result today is OJ taking a golf break while he continues the search for the real killer(s).
