BREAKING: R. Kelly meted 30 years jail term for sex trafficking young fans

On Wednesday, a local court convicted disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly to 30 years in prison for sex trafficking young fans.

The court found the pieces of evidence sufficient to convict Robert Sylvester Kelly, a 55-year-old multiplatinum-selling artist, guilty of his sex trafficking case.

Last September, Kelly was also convicted of nine racketeering counts for a decades-long sex abuse scheme targeting young female fans, some of whom were minors and boys.

Kelly’s lawyer appealed for a 10-year jail term since the suspect was allegedly a severe childhood sexual abuse victim.

However, Brooklyn Federal Judge Ann Donnelly decided to impose a longer penalty for the accused.

Moreover, the prosecutors have successfully shown that the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer and members of his entourage targeted victims at his sold-out concerts, shopping malls, and even a McDonald’s in Chicago.

It was also learned that more than 40 witnesses and 11 accusers took the stand during the nearly month-long trial.
