R. Kelly’s trial for child pornography charges was briefly disrupted on Thursday when a fan snuck into the Chicago, Illinois courthouse and yelled at jurors to free the troubled singer.

The Bump N’ Grind hitmaker currently stands accused of videotaping himself having sex with a 13-year-old girl, and could face up to 15 years behind bars if he is found guilty.

But proceedings were briefly delayed when Debra Triplett managed to gain access to a freight elevator reserved for the jurors in the courthouse.

The woman then waited for the jury members to exit the elevator, at which point she began to shout “Free R. Kelly!” repeatedly, until she was arrested by police.

She was brought before Judge Vincent Gaughan – the judge presiding over Kelly’s case – who found her to be in contempt of court.

Gaughan set bail at $50,000 and Triplett is due back in court for a hearing on June 25th, reports MTV.com.
