I don't know why R. Kelly is looking at kiddie porn charges, and not statutory rape charges, I haven't really followed the case. I did just want to point out how the AP, yet again, refuses to call rape what it is. Instead Kelly is described as "having sex with a girl as young as 13." As has been pointed out numerous times, sex with children is rape. Period.
