The star is awaiting trial on new charges of sexual assault and abuse involving four alleged victims, three of whom were minors – including the victim at the center of the 2008 case.

Jim says the charges are “serious, but not that serious enough,” and expresses doubt that Kelly, who has pleaded not guilty, will be convicted.”It’s still just a few accusers – and those are very brave women – but the defense will destroy them on the stand. “Such is rape culture,” he says. “Badly, in the States and several other countries, they do not believe the accusers. He holds out more hope for the concurrent investigations by the FBI,  Department of Homeland Security and the IRS – which he believes may impact charges within the month.

Jim says that his understanding is that they’re looking at 30 years of tax evasion and 30 years of sex trafficking.
