The woman who prosecutors say could blow the R. Kelly child molestation case wide open returned to Atlanta yesterday after her scheduled testimony was delayed for two days.
Lisa Van Allen, 27, is the prosecution's star witness who allegedly had a three-way sexual encounter with Kelly and the 13-year old girl at the center of the case against Kelly. Allen is expected to return to Chicago to testify on Monday.
Allen's testimony was delayed because the defense flew in a witness from Atlanta who, according to the judge, could undermine her credibility.
The defense witness, Damon Pryor, arrived in Chicago on Wednesday night at the expense of R. Kelly. Once in Chicago, Pryor refused to give the prosecution his Social Security number for a background check to verify he is who he says he is.
The judge refused to allow Pryor's testimony without a background check.
Additionally, a video expert testified Thursday that a dark area on Kelly's back "corresponds" with a mole on Kelly's back.
The expert also said it was "impossible" the tape had been digitally altered. (Source)
