R. Kelly's lawyers ask judge to dismiss child pornography case

UPI News Service, 12/16/2005 

R. Kelly's attorneys Friday asked a Chicago judge to dismiss the child pornography case against the R&B superstar.

Kelly was in the courtroom as his attorneys introduced a motion stating the 14 counts of child pornography should be tossed because of the way the indictment is worded, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The defense team said the indictment, which says Kelly "knew" or "should have known" the girl he had sex with on videotape was under 18, could potentially confuse a jury.

The prosecution said the language was in line with child pornography laws.

Judge Vincent Gaughan said he would issue a ruling on the motion after the new year. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Feb. 10.
