OFF THE HOOK... IN FLORIDA AT LEAST: The prosecution in the Florida child porn case against R Kelly has dropped the charges, following the judge's ruling that the pictures that formed the basis of its case were obtained illegally. As we pointed out last week, this is a bit of a pyrrhic victory for Kelly, who maintained his innocence of the charges; rather than being cleared in open court, he's now not facing charges on a technicality which is always going to leave a bit of a bad smell hanging over him. Perhaps the Chicago case, which is still steaming ahead, will give him a chance to clear his name forever. Perhaps.
