During a break in the proceedings, a trial juror in R&B star R.Kelly’s case in Chicago suffered a panic attack and was excused by the Judge, according to reporter Jon Seidel.
After the prosecution gave their closing argument, on Monday September 12, the white female juror began to have a panic attack, TMZ reported.
Reporter Jon Seidel noted that the judge said he was told the juror “couldn’t last another minute” and he excused her.
The judge says a white male alternate juror is now stepping in, and like the juror he’s replacing, this guy has also not seen the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary.
As the trial comes to an end, the defense team is now giving their closing arguments, after the prosecution ripped Kelly to begin the day, labeling him a sexual predator who used his celebrity status to abuse minors.
Kelly, who was already sentenced to 30 years in federal prison following a June conviction in New York, is expected to learn his fate soon depending on how long it takes the jury to reach a verdict
