R. Kelly: Take My Pic, Go to Jail!

12/25/2007 2:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

R. KellyIn the irony to end all ironies, a woman was sentenced to five days in jail for snapping a pic of R. Kelly in court (big no-no!). Meanwhile, he hasn't even gone to trial yet over child porn charges -- and it's been over five years. Objection!

Jean Johnson, 49, used her cellphone camera to snap pictures of R. Kelly during a recent hearing. She plead guilty to contempt of court and was sentenced to the five days, but was released for time served.

Johnson claims that she is Kelly's "biggest fan," however, there are no pictures or video to prove it.

Yucks!    

Maybe he should of taken a picture in the courtroom 5 years ago. Maybe he'd be locked up by now! The American Justice System at it's best! LMFAO! WTF?!

Oh my god, how dumb can people be? A pedophile is an adult who has sex with prepubescent children. A molester is someone who has forceful sex with at least one other person. R Kelly is NEITHER! He had consensual sex with a 15 year old girl, clearly not prepubescent, who probably knew exactly the act to which she was consenting. If R Kelly wanted, he could sue thousands of people for defamation of character and he would win.

This is what is wrong with our justice system.
Any judge who allows Five years to pass with no trail should be removed from the bench!
Idiots!

I'M SORRY, BUT WHERE WAS THIS CHILD'S MOTHER WHILE SHE WAS OUT GETTIN HER FREAK ON? I MEAN REALLY, THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THIS CHILD, JUST ONE DAY SAID ' I WANT TO SLEEP WITH AN OLDER MAN" OR HE DIDN'T JUST FIND HER ON THE STREET AND PULL HER INTO HIS LIMO. I'M PRETTY SURE SHE WAS THE ONE WHO INTIATED THE ACT. IT IS TRUE THAT HE IS THE ADULT, BUT LET'S LOOK AT TELEVISION, AND HOW MANY OF THOSE OLDER WOMAN DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO LOOK UNDER 20YRS. AND THEN THERE'S THE YOUNG GIRLS WHO DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO LOOK OVER 21. LET'S BE HONEST HOW MANY MEN ASK TO SEE AN I.D. GRANTED R. KELLY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BUT TO BE HONEST I WOULD HOPE HE'S LEARNED HIS LESSON.

Who told you that? Go to dictionary.com and look up the definition of pedophile. Just because you are an adult who is attracted to children or a fast ass child who likes to give it up to adults doesn't change the definition of the word. My guess is you are the latter. It is against the law for a 30 something year old man to have sex with a child of any age. The person you are are referring to as a molester is a rapist. Try to check your facts before you speak. You can't just make stuff up and assume its true. Well you can, but that won't make it true.

He's Boring now    

Welcome to the Cook County Criminal Courts system. They dont put up with that la la land nonsense----either in courtroom behaviour or Sentences.

If he's found guilty dont expect him to be doing Community Service. He'll do hard State Prison Time. If this lady got 5 days for taking a picture, you can do the math on what a judge would give him for hurting a kid. I could care less he sings good, lots of us are good at our jobs, but we dont seek out sex with minors. Even if this particular minor agreed to it. He's wrong, not just morally but legally.

TROLL SMASHERS    

it's absolutely AMAZING how many people TMZ can lead with their twisted take on the news...

Cook County the Court held her in contempt for doing that and it would have been the same no matter who was in court, it had nothing to do with R Kelly saying "Arrest her, she took my picture" A COOK COUNTY DEP SAW HER, TOOK THE PHONE AND WHEN THE PHOTOS WERE FOUND ON IT, THE JUDGE - NOT R KELLY ORDERED HER IN CONTEMPT.

***THIS IS NOT IN SUPPORT OF HIM, BUT MERELY SHEDDING A BIT MORE LIGHT THAN TMZ's HACK BLOGGERS WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW ***

He is clearly paying this C(R)OOK COUNTY trial off, there is no way in hell - especially with our current Governor, a huge child rights/care advocate, that he should be walking free right now..

He better thank his lucky stars he didn't do this in DUPAGE COUNTY for now, five years later he would NOT BE ON TOUR but rather have oh I'd say about 7 more years left of his time in prison to serve.

Guys getting busted in the entrapment that is "To Catch A Predator" have gone through more than this guy will for ACTUALLY commiting a crime. Go figure (then again he's black with money)
