R. Kelly judge denies motion to delay trial

The judge in Grammy-winning artist R. Kelly’s child pornography case this morning denied a defense motion to delay the trial and ruled that jury selection can begin.

Defense attorney Marc Martin had argued that the jury pool has been ‘‘irrevocably poisoned’’ by a story in today’s Chicago Sun-Times about a Kelly aide allegedly paying a potential witness in exchange for an incriminating tape.

But prosecutors contended it was premature to say the article affected potential jurors and that, if any were tainted, they could be weeded out during the selection process.
