R. Kelly’s defense claims rock critic Jim DeRogatis guilty of child pornography

    After it became apparent that the “that piss could be digital” defense wasn’t doing them any favors, R. Kelly’s defense team has now refocused their ire on rock critic Jim DeRogatis and anyone who may have came in contact with R. Kelly’s sex tape.

    Attorneys for Kelly have been pressing for DeRogatis to appear in court, because he was the one who handed over the tape to police, and now they’re claiming because he had the tape, he is also guilty of child pornography.

     

    DeRogatis says he will invoke his reporter’s privilege in order to avoid testifying, but Kelly’s defense claims he has purposefully “immersed” himself in the proceedings.

    The judge said he would rule by Friday whether or not DeRogatis would be forced to appear. [Daily Swarm]
