R. Kelly trial juror excused by judge after suffering panic attack in court

A juror in the trial in the R&B star R. Kelly case in Chicago suffered a panic attack during a break in proceedings, and was excused by the judge.

TMZ reported that during the trial on Monday, Sept. 12, the white juror began having a panic attack after the prosecution delivered their closing plea.

The judge said he was told the juror “couldn’t last another minute” and he excused her, according to reporter Jon Seidel.

The judge says a white substitute juror is now stepping in, and like the juror he’s replacing, this guy also hasn’t seen the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary.

As the trial draws to a close, the defense team now present their closing arguments, after the prosecution ripped Kelly to start the day, calling him a sexual predator who used his celebrity status to abuse minors .

Kelly, who has already been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison following a June conviction in New York, is expected to know his fate soon depending on how long it takes for the jury to reach a verdict.
