Meanwhile the publicity-seeking news-hound attorney, Michael Avenatti has surfaced in the case. He has said that he turned a video over to authorities that depicted Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Kelly was acquitted of a similar charge in the past. We attach little credibility to anything Avenatti says and will wait to hear the evidence adduced at the trial if one is held.
