After six years of delays, jury selection is set to begin Friday in R. Kelly's trial on child pornography charges, prompted by a videotape allegedly showing Grammy-winning R&B singer having sex with a girl as young as 13. Prosecutors, though, will have a unique challenge: The alleged victim, now 23, says it wasn't her. And Kelly's attorneys haven't admitted it's him in the video. Kelly, whose first name is Robert, faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
