Derrel McDavid repeatedly stated on the witness stand over two days that he hired “the best in the business” to represent his star client, R. Kelly, who was accused of sexually abusing underage girls in the early 2000s.

Kelly’s all-star legal team, led by legendary attorney Ed Genson, managed to win an acquittal for Kelly at the singer’s 2008 child pornography trial — though federal prosecutors would later say McDavid, Kelly, and Kelly’s assistant, Milton “June” Brown, had boosted the defense with an elaborate and costly coverup scheme.

McDavid jumped out of his seat, thrust both arms into the air, and wrapped his own attorney, Vadim Glozman, in a bear hug on Wednesday, as Judge Harry D. Leinenweber read off a string of not-guilty verdicts for the four counts against him.
