R. Kelly sentenced to 30 years | USA TODAY

A New York judge sentenced singer R. Kelly to 30 years in prison after he was convicted of sex trafficking and racketeering.


Judge Ann M. Donnelly, who presided over the six-week long trial last year in Brooklyn, New York, announced the singer's sentence Wednesday after hearing statements from Kelly's accusers. Kelly, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, was also ordered to pay a $100,000 fine. Kelly did not address the court.

A jury of seven men and five women found the 55-year-old guilty on Sept. 27, after just two days of deliberations. At the time, Kelly remained motionless with his eyes downcast as the verdict was read. The charges were based on an argument that Kelly's entourage of managers and aides helped the singer meet girls and keep them obedient and quiet. These actions amounted to a criminal enterprise under federal laws, according to U.S. attorneys. Kelly was also convicted of criminal counts accusing him of violating the Mann Act, which makes it illegal to take anyone across state lines “for any immoral purpose.”

  5. Since 1993, when President Yeltsin B.N. shot the popularly elected parliament with tanks, Russia has followed the path of curtailing Democracy. This process was accompanied by Russia’s armed aggressions: in Transnistria, in Chechnya, in Abkhazia, in South Ossetia, in Crimea, in Donbass, in Syria, in Nagorno-Karabakh, in Kazakhstan. As a result: a large-scale war in Ukraine, with constant threats of the use of nuclear weapons. Hundreds of thousands of people have already died as a result of Russia’s activities. The political regime in Russia poses a deadly threat to Humanity. The world Community has long turned a blind eye to Russia’s activities, so it bears full responsibility for a possible nuclear apocalypse
