증인, 실명을 사용하지 않고 브루클린 연방 법원에서 증언, 켈리가 그를 시카고 지역의 집으로 유인한 방법에 대해 배심원에게 말했습니다. 2007 그의 신생 음악 경력을 돕기 위해 거짓 제안으로.
Kelly asked the alleged victim, 그때 17, “what I was willing to do for music,” the witness said. 그는 대답했다, “I’ll carry your bags. … Anything you need, I’ll be willing to do.”
“That’s not it. That’s not it,” he said Kelly responded before asking him if he ever fantasized about having sex with men. He described how Kelly then “crawled down on his knees and proceeded to give me oral sex,” even though, “I wasn’t into it.”
기후, “he told me to keep between him and me,” 그는 말했다.
In a later episode, Kelly snapped his fingers to summon a naked girl from where she was hiding under a boxing ring to give Kelly and the witness oral sex, the man told the jury.
He kept seeing Kelly after that because “I really wanted to make it in the music industry,” 그는 말했다.
The witness was testifying as part of a cooperation agreement stemming from his guilty plea in a separate case alleging he was part of a botched scheme to bribe a woman to not testify against Kelly. No charges were brought against Kelly related to the scheme.
켈리, 54, has repeatedly denied accusations that he preyed on victims during a 30-year career highlighted by his 1996 mega hit “I Believe I Can Fly.” His lawyers have portrayed his accusers as groupies who are lying about their relationships with him.
Earlier Monday, a woman testified that Kelly sexually assaulted her at age 17 following a performance in Miami in 1994. 증인, also testifying without using her real name, claimed that Kelly’s cronies took her and a friend to his dressing room after the show before he pulled down her shorts and forced her to have unprotected sex, 그녀가 말했다.
“I was in complete shock,” 그녀가 말했다. “I didn’t know what to say at all. I basically went blank.”
기후, she and her friend “unlocked the door and ran out of there,” 그녀가 말했다.
On cross-examination, defense attorney Deveraux Cannick pressed the witness on why, after someone allegedly “raped you,” she waited more than two decades to contact law enforcement.
“Because I didn’t want to feel more shame and trauma,” 그녀가 말했다.
