I'm glad they didn't buy the "Little Man" defense

R Kelly trial @ BBC:
Speaking to the media afterwards, several jury members said they just couldn't be sure that the young girl was who the prosecution claimed.

Some thought that the man in the film was R Kelly, but without a victim, pointing their finger across the courtroom, there was that crucial element of 'reasonable doubt'.
This is pretty reasonable, the lack of victim testimony is why they went with child porn rather than statutory rape, anyway. I'm just glad the jury didn't really buy the "they stuck my head on the pisser's body" defense.
