R. Kelly lawyers: 'We're in.'

The theatrical father-and-son team Sam Adam and Sam Adam Jr., best known for defending R. Kelly, told me today they are officially on board Blago's case.
"We're in," Adam Jr. said. "My father and I are planning to file our appearances Monday or Tuesday."
The firm decision comes after a Friday meeting among the lawyers in the case.
They join Shelly Sorosky as a team of three to represent ousted governor Rod Blagojevich. They expect to ask Judge James Zagel to appoint a fourth lawyer, Allan Ackerman, to handle the voluminous paper in the case.
"He is legal giant. We're going to need someone who's had experience with cases like this," Adam Jr. said.

The Adams, along with veteran attorney Ed Genson, were part of the trial team representing R&B singer R. Kelly, who beat sex charges last year.
"We are before one of the best federal judges that anyone can hope for," Adam Jr. said.
