Prosecutors Talk R. Kelly’s ‘Dark Side’ on Trial

A federal prosecutor made an initial attempt at shedding light on R. Kelly’s “dark side”

during opening statements for the disgraced artist’s federal sex crimes

and child pornography trial in Chicago on Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Julien told jurors that Kelly “had another side,

a hidden side, a dark side, that he did not allow the world to see.”

Kelly had gone to extraordinary lengths to protect himself after

investigators began looking into the allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

Julien said they would hear testimony from witnesses who can speak to its existence.
