Today will be the first full day of jury deliberation in R. Kelly’s Chicago trial.
The fate of R. Kelly and his two former employees now rests in the hands of a jury at the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago.
Closing arguments concluded Tuesday morning and the jury began deliberating. Jurors were dismissed for the day around 4:40 p.m. and will resume deliberations this morning (Wed).
Jurors will need to weigh 13 charges against the three defendants as they debate whether R. Kelly will serve more time in federal prison on child pornography charges dating back decades.
The disgraced singer, is on trial with two men intertwined with Kelly’s career, including his former business manager, Derrel McDavid, and former employee, Milton Brown.
