As we all know that R. Kelly is going to trial. But apparently, things will be done differently this time around. A judge has ruled that cameras will be in allowed in the courtroom during R. Kelly’s abuse trial and pretrial hearings. 

Judge Lawrence Flood said during a hearing Friday that cameras will be allowed as soon as March 22. Photos and videos of the accusers won’t be shown without their consent. Two accusers have refused to give their consent so far. 

Kelly did not attend the most recent hearing, his lawyer did instead. Kelly is facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.
