R. Kelly Gets a Small Legal Victory
R. Kelly got a small victory. He had lost a sexual assault case against him because he never showed up to court, so the judge issued a default order. Now, he is getting a second chance to fight it. His new lawyers filled a motion asking the judge to throw out the default, according to TMZ. The case was brought against him by Heather Williams, who says Kelly sexually abused her at the age of 16. His lawyers said that he was confused, which is why he didn't show up. They also claim that he couldn't read the papers, which he was served with while he was in jail. The judge bought it and is giving him a second chance to fight the case.
