DeRogatis vs. Kelly

“The Pied Piper of R&B” is off the hook in his trial but Jim DeRogatis has good reason to fear for his own freedom in the trial, as detailed well in this Chicago Reader story about the case and his involvement.  It turns out that despite the court’s assurances, taking the 5th was a wise move in the murky waters of the legal matters involved.  Other writers/reporters, and not just in the music field, can rest easy for now that he handled things so deftly.  Rest assured, when another high profile case comes up and some high-paid lawyers grill another writer, the outcome might not be so peachy-creamy.
