Jerhonda Pace, one of six women in the federal indictment, took the stand in Brooklyn’s Federal District Court Wednesday to testify against her alleged abuser.
Pace testified that she first met Kelly when she was just 14-years-old when she attended every day of his 2008 child pornography trial, Indo Bokep in which he was found not guilty due to lack of sufficient evidence.
When Pace was 16 she said she went to a party and met up with Kelly, claiming she was 19-years-old.
She said Kelly remembered her from court and Porn Sex invited her back to his mansion a few days later where he told her to put on her swimsuit while he sat on a lounge chair and for her to walk back and forth while removing her swimsuit.
She said the two then began kissing and he performed oral Porn Sex on her but she ‘felt uncomfortable’ lying about her age, so she told him she was actually 16 and showed him her state ID as proof, and Kelly asked ‘What is that supposed to mean?’ reported.
Pace said Kelly told her to keep saying she was 19 and ‘act 21’ and that he ‘was going to train me on how to please him sexually.’
When she told him she was a virgin, she said Kelly responded ‘that’s good’ and told her to lie about her age to other people.
Pace said she continued to see and have Porn Sex with Kelly over the next several months and that Kelly would often film their encounters.
He also allegedly made Pace follow a strict set of rules, including making her wear baggy clothes, having her call him ‘Daddy,’ and forbidding her from eating food or Video Bokep using the bathroom without his permission, Buzzfeed reported.
Pace said she was forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement, and a letter full of false admissions that claimed she had stolen money and jewelry from him, which prosecutors allege was a form of blackmail by Kelly.
Pace said she normally abided by Kelly’s rules, but when she didn’t he would be punished.

On the final day she spent in Kelly’s house in 2010, Indo Bokep Pace said she was distracted and didn’t immediately acknowledge Kelly’s presence when he entered and Kelly slapped her and Video Porno choked her out until she passed out.

Pace said Kelly ejaculated on her face and she wiped Kelly’s spit and semen on a blue T-shirt that was presented in court Wednesday as evidence.
Pace said after that incident she made up an excuse to leave the mansion and never returned.
Prosecutors described the 54-year-old as a ‘predator’ who used his fame to lure in children and Indo Bokep young women as part of a criminal enterprise where he sexually exploited his victims and trafficked them across state lines.

However, Kelly’s attorney instead claimed that Kelly was the victim of ‘fans’ who wanted the ‘notoriety of being with a superstar’ and Indo Bokep had enjoyed ‘beautiful’, consensual relationships with him and were now turning on him.
His defense sought to discredit the accusers telling jurors they will be faced with ‘a mess of lies’ and that ‘their testimony will crumble’ when they take the stand.
This came after Judge Ann Donnelly threw out the defense’s final last-ditch attempt to dismiss the case but allowed them to bring a printer into the courtroom to help them manage the 3,500 pieces of evidence expected to be presented at the trial.
Kelly is standing trial accused of being the ringleader of an underage Porn Sex ring spanning two decades where women allegedly had to call him ‘Daddy’ and had to ask his permission to use the bathroom.
He is charged with racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, Porn Sex trafficking and forced labor between 1994 and 2018 relating to six alleged victims.
Six women and girls are cited in the nine-count indictment – with at least three of them underage and all aged between 15 and 22 at the time of the alleged crimes.

Kelly denies all the charges but faces up to life in prison if convicted on all counts.

Kelly sexually abused an underage boy he met in McDonalds after promising to help his music career
The 54-year-old sat in the courtroom in a gray suit, Video Porno purple tie, and glasses with his head down at times as the prosecution described an alleged pattern of violent abuse.
In opening statements, Assistant US Attorney Maria Cruz Melendez told the jury Kelly used ‘every trick in the predator handbook’ to groom his victims, blackmailed them with Porn Sex tapes and violently beat them if they failed to comply with his demands.

Any of his victims who didn’t meet his demands was subjected to ‘exacted cruel and demeaning punishments’ such as ‘violent spankings and beatings,’ the prosecutor said.
