The R. Kelly jury requested a trial transcript shortly before 4:30 p.m.
The jury of eight whites and four blacks — nine men and three women — asked for transcripts of the entire trial. Failing that, they wanted a transcript of the direct and cross-examinations of Lisa Van Allen. Judge Vincent Gaughan told them no and to resume deliberating.
Van Allen testified June 2 that she had engaged in threesomes with R. Kelly and the girl who allegedly appears in the sex videotape at issue in this case. She said one of the trysts was videotaped by Kelly, and that Kelly's business manager later paid her $20,000 for the tape's return.
