R. Kelly Jurors: No Doubt It's Him on the Tape

6/13/2008 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Even though jurors in the trial of R. Kelly absolutely believed it was him on the tape, they could not reach a guilty verdict because they said there was "not enough evidence to prosecute." Huh?!

Five of the twelve jurors met with reporters immediately after handing down the acquittal. They said they just couldn't reach a verdict even though they voted on the hour, every hour because the alleged victim hadn't testified and refused to cooperate. As recently as this morning, we're told, the vote was split nine to three for a not guilty verdict.

The jurors were also "absolutely disgusted" with the tape. Unlike the bootleg version you can buy on the street corner, the version they got to watch was "clear as day."

We're hearing R. Kelly will be partying it up tonight in Chicago.

Hooray for R. Kelly....aren't there more important things to waste tax payer dollars on than hauling someone to court over their sex life. You know 13 year olds are more mature these days. She knew what time it was....I want to go to the chocolate factory...take me....

This sounds like another dumb jury and it isn't even in LA. It there was no doubt it was him on the tape, what more do you need? Wouldn't you think that if it really wasn't him or her on the tape, they would have taken the stand? They didn't because they didn't want to perjure themselves. It is really sad that another pedophile has gotten away with a crime. What a sick deviant? I think he is disgusting and I hope he gets caught one day because he will do it again.

He got off because people are tired of the police wasting their resources on people's sex lives. It wasn't rape as she knew what she was doing and wanted to do it. He didn't get her drunk and take advantage of her.
