R. Kelly’s Child Porn Trial Delayed…Again

R. Kelly’s Child Porn Trial Delayed…Again

R. Kelly's pending child pornography case has been delayed and, as of press time, has not been rescheduled.

According to The Chicago Daily Herald Kells' trial has been postponed due to "personal" reasons.

"Under doctor's orders, the lead prosecutor, who has recently given birth, is not able to proceed at this time," a statement from the court revealed earlier today (September 4).

Kelly appeared in Judge Vincent Michael Gaughan's courtroom today (September 4), expecting pre-trial motions, but instead was hit with deja vu.

As reported the controversial trial, which Kells was indicted for in 2002, has a long history of setbacks, including Kelly's appendix surgery last February, and last summer when Judge Gaughan broke his back.

Jury selection was to begin on September 17.

Kelly faces 14 counts of child pornography involving a videotape documenting sexual relations with a teenage girl. Prosecutors have said the victim could be as young as 13. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.

Kells has pleaded not guilty.
