How did Hannah Montana get involved in this?

Attorney Sam Adam Jr. delivered the opening and closing arguments for the defense in the R. Kelly child-porn trial. In so doing, he was noted for throwing in a lot of pop-cultural references, from "The Office" to Gary Coleman to the Wayans brothers and other jokey asides. He explained it to MTV News this way: "If you like someone, you give them the benefit of the doubt. And to give them the pop-culture references, to do those kinds of things, will certainly make you relate with the jury much better. I tried to do it for the young kids with Dave Chappelle; I tried to do it with the middle-aged ones who were more religious — like the preacher's wife — and give her Bible verses; and I tried to do with the older ones with [1950s TV show] 'The Honeymooners' and Ralph Kramden and the 'old squeeze play.' "

And that's how Miley Cyrus found her way into it ...

During his closing argument, Adam used Hannah Montana tickets as an example of how teenage girls gossip.

He told the jury: "This wasn't a gardener or the man down the street or a janitor. This was a 13-year-old girl having sex with a superstar, and she doesn't tell anyone? She doesn't let it slip to her best friend? Never? Not anyone? You can't keep a 13-year-old's mouth closed over Hannah Montana tickets, but this?"

In talking with MTV, Adam apologized to Cyrus for dragging her into it. "Miley Cyrus woke up this morning [saying], 'Why me?!" Adam told MTV. " 'Hannah Montana' is the biggest thing out — no offense, Robert. And to Miley, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to bring you up, and if you took it negatively, I'm sorry."

Is it possible the Sun-Times webmastes could please take this blog down? The case is over with, okay! Are you going to hound this guy the same as O.J.? Leave the guy alone! And please understand it does not mean I agree or disagree with the verdict, it simply mean lets move on!

I agree, this is old news now. Let's move on this guy also just lost a family member (I believe his grandmother). We should leave him alone. Blogging about this changes nothing now.

yeah lets leave him alone so he could mess up time and time again just like that piece of garbage O.J.
