R. Kelly Has Grounds for Appeal

Holy shit. How in the FUCK do you let your attorney go off and make this his closing statement. I guess we shouldn't scratch our heads to the point of scabbing since this trial has pretty much sealed the R & B singer's fate but...whoah. From
Speaking after prosecutors had showed the jury the notorious sex tape at the center of the case one last time, defense attorney Sam Adam Jr said that the girl on the tape had accepted cash before performing a series of sex acts.
Showing the jury a studio photograph of the alleged victim on a large screen, he then told them that if they were going to find Kelly guilty of 14 counts of child pornography, “you are going to have to call (the alleged victim) 14 times individually and collectively a whore.”
Barely audible, he whispered, “My momma told me when we were kids, ‘if you ain’t got something nice to say about someone, don’t say it about her.”
He concluded his argument saying, “How are you 14 times going to call her a whore?”

So let me get this straight. If you convict R. Kelly of pissing on an underage girl you, the jury, are thereby categorizing the girl a whore? Um, makes sense. Not much of an argument there considering she took money for services obviously rendered. Yes, she whored herself but that still doesn't excuse Mr. Kelly from fucking and then urinating on an UNDERAGE girl. Yeah, I give my permission to the prosecuting attorney's to use this as their closing argument. I dropped out of college and in no universe would I ever posit a defense this retarded.
