    Published By:

    America R&B singer, R. Kelly, on Wednesday has been sentenced to 30 years in imprisonment over a Sex Crime.

    Following his conviction in 2021 on federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges.

    R Kelly was accused and charged of using his Popularity to ensnare victims he sexually abused.

    the Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence the 55-year-old R&B Singer to more than 25 years behind bars, while his defense attorneys asked the Court for 10 or fewer, stating that the prosecutors’ request was “tantamount to a life imprisonment.”

    In September 2021, a jury convicted Kelly over nine counts, including one charge of racketeering and eight counts of violations of the Man Act, a sex trafficking law.

    the Prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York accused Kelly of using his status as a celebrity and a “network of people at his disposal to target girls, boys and young women for his own sexual gratification.”
