(AllHipHop News) Leave it to the experts to call what’s going to happen with the justice system after the fiasco in Chicago surrounding Jussie Smollett.
Now that that Jussie has been cleared, prosecutors are turning all of their attention to another controversial name: R. Kelly.
However, it looks like the recent back and forths with the police and justice system leaves prosecutors tainted in how to proceed in charging the “Ignition” singer, who has been accused of multiple sex crimes including interscourse with minors.
Now, people are speculating that R. Kelly's case will be affected due to the Smollett phenomenon.
R. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg told USA TODAY, “This case is going to crumble.”
The 52-year-old will be prosecuted by Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.
Even though recused herself from the case after it was revealed she had contacts with Jesse's family, Foxx is currently facing a firestorm of criticism for her office's decision to drop the 16 felony charges against Jussie.
Both Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson blasted the decision.
And some of her detractors are calling for her resignation, after it was revealed Jussie's lawyer had donated to her campaign.
