Prosecutor Describes R. Kelly as Sexual Predator During Closing Arguments of Child Porn Trial

CHICAGO (AP) – A prosecutor has described R. Kelly as a sexual predator who parlayed his fame to abuse minors.

Addressing jurors during closing arguments Monday Kelly’s child pornography and trial-fixing trial, Elizabeth Pozolo said one of his accusers said he took advantage of her youth.

“He repeatedly abused her. He performed degrading acts upon her for his own sick pleasure,” she said.

She said Kelly and his co-defendants recovered child pornography videos and hid evidence before Kelly’s 2008 trial, at which he was acquitted.

The prosecutor said they covered up the fact that “R. Kelly…the R&B superstar…is actually a sexual predator.”
