R Kelly jury foolishnessMay 16 2008

A list of ways to get yourself excused from the jury pool in the R. Kelly child pornography case.

I (heart) R. Kelly. Nothing gets prospective jurors booted faster than telling the prosecution they are a fan of Kelly's. Just ask the woman who called him a "musical genius." When prodded to say something negative about Kelly, the best she could come up with was: "He and [rapper] Jay-Z don't get along?" Prosecutors bounced her soon after.

Another potential juror was excused for suggesting that Kelly "led the Taliban in attacking us on 9-11".
