R. Kelly’s trial is almost over and during the closing arguments, Defense attorney Deveraux Cannick compared R. Kelly to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He even quoted Dr. King’s “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech. Cannick also expressed that the prosecutors’ case was flawed and alleged they encouraged witnesses to lie on the stand, misled jurors, and pushed a false narrative.
If convicted, Kelly faces 10 years to life in prison.
