With Eight Chosen, Jury Selection Continues in R. Kelly's Trial

With half of the 16 members chosen, jury selection goes on in R&B singer R. Kelly's Chicago child pornography trial.

Selection begins again Wednesday after five jurors were paneled Tuesday in Kelly's case, including a criminal justice student who said she knew one or two songs by the music star, but called his music "old stuff." Other jurors chosen Tuesday included a male culinary student, a female teacher's aide, a man who has already served on two civil juries and a man who works in investment.

Three jurors were chosen on Wednesday with 16 to be picked overall.

If jurors find the Grammy-winning artist guilty, he could go to prison for up to 15 years. Kelly has pleaded not guilty.
