Federal Trial

The singer was previously sentenced to 30 years in prison after a sex crimes conviction last fall.

A juror was dismissed this week from the disgraced singer's federal sex crimes trial in Chicago, shortly before jury deliberations began.

On Tuesday, a former merchandising agent named Charles Freeman testified that the disgraced singer R. Kelly offered him $1 million to find the recording of him and an underage victim having sex back in 2001. Freeman also told the jury about the lengths he went to in order to be paid by Kelly and his associates. The post R.

The victim at the center of R. Kelly's 2002 sex tape and 2008 trial is finally cooperating with authorities in his current Chicago case.

Roof attended Tuesday's hearing sitting "impassively" in front of the victims' families, journalists and spectators, the Times reports. He faces 33 counts, including hate crimes.
