R. Kelly Refuses To Testify At His Federal Trial

Media Take Out Staff |

R. Kelly has decided not to testify in his Chicago federal trial.

The disgraced singer is for several charges including child pornography and obstruction of justice charges.

Kelly did not testify at his federal trial last year in New York. He was still convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking charges, and sentenced to 30 years in prison. The singer also declined to take the stand in his infamous 2008 trial.

Two of Kelly’s associates, Derrel McDavid and Milton Brown, are his co-defendants in the trial. Both men are accused of assisting Kelly in the alleged crimes. They have all denied the crimes against them.

In opening arguments, prosecutor Jason Julien claimed Kelly had repeatedly sexually abused minors.

“The defendant, Robert Kelly, had sex with multiple children,” Julien said in court. “He made videos of himself having sex with children. And these two defendants, Milton Brown and Derrel McDavid, knew about it and covered it up.”
