Over the past six years that this case has been under investigation, the question of race hit jury selection. Not only that but everyone now knows about the case so the biggest fear was finding a group of men and women who would not be biased.

So many factors have come into play. One of the fears is that choosing the jury from a pool of the demographics where R. Kelly came from was in question.
