Reporter Summoned To Kelly Trial

LATEST: The judge in R. KELLY's child pornography trial has issued an order for an Illinois journalist to appear in court.
The troubled R+B star stands accused of videotaping himself having sex with a 13-year-old girl. He has pleaded not guilty to all 14 counts of child pornography.
On Tuesday (03Jun08), Judge Vincent Gaughan stopped short of issuing an arrest warrant for Jim DeRogatis - the Chicago Sun-Times reporter who handed authorities the videotape.
DeRogatis was due to appear in court to be questioned about the sex tape and how it came into his hands. But he failed to appear.
Gaughan issued a new order for DeRogatis to appear Wednesday (04Jun08) - the first day of the defence's case.
The judge rejected arguments that DeRogatis' actions are privileged under the First Amendment and he shouldn't have to appear.
