Renowned singer R. Kelly is hoping to get a positive result from his forthcoming sexual misconduct trial as he plans to use Michael Jackson’s former defense attorney to be on the winning side.
The embattled singer wants Thomas Mesereau to join his criminal defense team even as the legal expert is reportedly busy with a trial in Houston.
There are possibilities around R. Kely’s decision since Mesereau connected with Kelly on a Face Time call last month and he’s allegedly interested in taking on the role.
Going memory lane, Mesereau’s track record reflects that, he led Jackson’s 2005 criminal trial in Santa Barbara County, and got him cleared on all charges including 4 counts of molesting a minor, 4 counts of intoxicating a minor to molest him, 1 count of attempted child molestation, 1 count of conspiring to hold the boy and his family captive, and conspiring to commit extortion and child abduction.
At the end of the case, it has been recorded in history that Jackson was found not guilty after Mesereau put together a powerful defense.
Kelly is faced with the possibility of two federal indictments after he has been charged with 10 counts of sexual abuse in Chicago.
