    R. Kelly was acquitted on all 14 counts in his child pornography case today. The Chicago jury reached a not guilty decision after less than eight hours of deliberating. Kelly was facing a minimum of four years (and a maximum of 15) in prison if convicted of videotaping himself having sex with an underage girl. Prosecutors claimed she was as young as 13 at the time of the taping—she's 23 now—despite her refusal to testify in the case.

    One of the prosecution's main witnesses was a friend of the alleged victim, who said she had a threesome with the pair. On the other hand, the singer's legal team argued the man on the tape doesn't have a large mole on his back and Kelly does.
