R Kelly jurors say they believe RnB star was on sex tape

Their 'not guilty' verdict was based on female's identity

Several members of the jury that acquitted R Kelly of 14 counts of child pornography on Friday (June 13) have said they believe it was Kelly on the tape at the centre of the trial.

However, they delivered a not guilty verdict as they were unsure of the identity of the female who also appeared in the video.

“I thought it was R Kelly on the tape, I just wasn’t 100 percent on the girl,” said juror #9.

“The key problem was the identity of the female. Her absence was a major lack,” said juror #23.

The jurors told MTV that the prospect of being sequestered over Father’s Day weekend had no bearing on their quick decision.

The 12-person jury reached their verdict after just seven-and-a-half hours of deliberations, as previously reported.
