Defense attorneys have rested their case in the child pornography trial of R&B singer R. Kelly in Chicago.

The singer looked relaxed as defense attorney Ed Genson rested the case without calling any witnesses for the day.

Jurors sat in court for just several minutes before Judge Vincent Gaughan (GAWN) sent them home for the day. They’ll be back in court Tuesday, when prosecutors plan to call two rebuttal witnesses.

The judge told the jurors closing arguments are likely to begin Thursday.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of videotaping himself having sex with a female prosecutors say was at young as 13.
