Just like I told you in the past week or so, prosecutors are going to try and make a case against the former A+ list singer without using the victim from the child porn tape.
They are afraid of double jeopardy and losing the entire case.
R. Kelly protegee says she’s ready to testify against him again as new alleged underage sex tape surfaces
A newly discovered videotape that allegedly shows R&B singer R. Kelly sexually assaulting an underage girl is reportedly the same teen who was at the center of a 2001 video that led to child porn charges against the Chicago native, the girl’s aunt claims.
Stephanie Edwards, or Sparkle as she is better known, told The New York Times that she has seen stills of the new video and that it appears to be a separate incident but features the same people.
Sparkle testified against Kelly in 2008. She says she’s ready to do it again if prosecutors call on her.
Sparkle, along with a dozen other witnesses who identified her niece and Kelly in the 2001 videotape, testified against the popular singer in 2008. However, the girl in the video as well as her mother – Sparkle’s sister- insisted that the person filmed having sex and then being urinated on by Kelly – was not her daughter.
Their refusal to testify against Kelly ultimately led to a jury acquitting him of the charges.- Source
