R. Kelly verdict: R&B star found guilty in sex-trafficking trial | USA TODAY

 

Trial testimony lasted six weeks and included graphic testimony from over a dozen people accusing him of abuse dating back decades.

RELATED:

A jury of seven men and five women found R. Kelly guilty Monday on all nine counts of sex trafficking and racketeering, on just the second day of deliberations. Kelly remained motionless, eyes downcast as the verdict was read.

The charges were based on an argument that the entourage of managers and aides who helped the singer meet girls – and keep them obedient and quiet – amounted to a criminal enterprise under the federal laws originally aimed a stopping organized crime.

  1. *predictions for Christmas . Bitcoin will be $100k and joe Biden will no longer be president. So Because of the economic crisis and the rate of unemployment, now is the best time to invest and make money * .

    1. Thanks guys for the recommendation. it will be of good help to me. Now it left for everyone out there to face their fear or live in poverty forever.

  2. Ladies and gentlemen, we’re witnessing the end of R. Kelly the god of R&B and one the most talented musical geniuses in history. But unfortunately, he did wrong and must be punished. Now I hope the victims can find peace. But what all the people, including his entourage and the parents of those young women who knew what he was doing, shouldn’t they be charged too?

    1. Michael Jackson did all of this too & got away with it & still continues to get away with it because his victims never got justice meanwhile the Jackson family continue to profit while the victims suffer.

    2. Yes they can be charged by all the families as a civil suit. This has been a long time coming people. I do not feel bad for this fool at all. I saw that tape when it was first leaked back in 1999 and it was purely disgusting! Those girls looked like zombies being ordered around to do position after position. It was disgusting! And I remember being one of the only folks who would no longer support that pedophile back then either! Whatever! Karma comes for everyone at some point…..js

    1. I did some digging, and thankfully it’s a bit better than that. He’s facing, under law, between 10 years to life in prison. This doesn’t mean he only gets 10 years. It means the judge is legally not allowed to set his prison time below 10 years. He can, however, be sentenced all the way up to life in prison, so when sentencing comes around in May, the odds are we’ll hear that he’ll spend the rest of his life behind bars, since anything above 30 years means he’ll likely die before release.

    1. I’m recommend the man above,he help me to solve my financial problem and sent me clone card of $12000,I’m very happy to meet him

  3. R Kelly only ‘If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time’ Unfortunately now ‘It Seems Like You’re Ready’ for the ‘Bump n’ Grind’ in prison! Enjoy that ‘Backyard Party’

  4. I have a theory that everyone has a Personality Disorder (PD) with some disorders being More Severe than others. People with a PD will find, bond and work with people like them. People with a PD are very common and people will hide and disguise their disorder in Various Ways. A person can be a High Functioning Pillar of the community, however if their Common Sense or filter to avoid Bad Decisions did not develop they will make Bad Decisions like all the White Collar Professionals in the 6 Jan., 2021 United States National Capitol Breaking And Entering Incident and Famous People like R. Kelly.

  5. Is so sad that Aaliyah will never get to see her justice happen. R Kelly’s case literally makes me sick to my stomach,he literally looks at these women as objects but, there not. It’s crazy how he got away with these crimes he’s committed and he’s now getting caught and charged. R Kelly is a prime example of if your rich and famous and know people, you can get away with things like this.

  6. R. Kelly/Bill Cosby verdict, no matter the number of “Gender Perp Walks” performed by Public Media/Feminist Matriarch, the hand of time can not be turned back, Patriarchal Winter has arrived and Gender Hunger Games have began..

  7. 10 years for human trafficking wow and child molesters get 3 to 4 years. if you punch a dog in the face it’s animal abuse and your looking at real time 20 to 40 with peta fines.

    1. Wow what a coincidence, you invested with Mr Andrew Richardson also ? I also trade with him I get to earn a biweekly trading income of $38,000 pioneered by Mr Andrew Richardson ensuring sustainable profitability in my investment I’d say things are working out perfectly well ever since I started investing with him, keep up the good work sir

    2. I met Mr Andrew for the first time at a conference in Manchester I invested £25,000 and traded in one month making close to £152,759

    3. Seeing alot of success stories, he’s must be an honest and trustworthy person for people to say this good about him

    4. He’s not like other brokers that will start telling you stories and excuses why they trade didn’t go well after collecting your money

  8. Man oh Man another Great Man Career Ruined Yes He played a Role in His Downfall but He didn’t do it alone. Them Parents Should be Held Accountable for Releasing their Girl to Him them Pockets didn’t get Blessed like they thought so now its an Issue. DONT NOBODY COME FOR ME I STAND BY WHAT I SAID. I could go on but I’m not
    ** I’M STILL GOING TO PLAY HIS MUSIC

  9. The best strategy to use in trading crypto is to trade with a professional who understands the market quite well, that way maximum profit is guaranteed.

    1. I lost $3000 carelessly trading on a platform then I was referred to Mr Dave javens and he recovered my Lost and made an extra profit of 8000$ I was amazed by his strategies.

  10. The problem was the herpes only. Everyone has their own mind. You trading a record deal for sex? Who’s the victim? You mad about the herpes and that’s understandable but anything else is suspect cause someone calling you weak and stupid is going to upset you right…so let’s call it correctly . We all get mad when relationships don’t go as planned.. My kids would have to deal with me and that’s almost jail time for me after I’m finished cause they would definitely know not to come with the sad sob story after the fact. How many times did you have sex? You were supposed to alert everyone before anything happened period, anything else…I’m looking at you crazy You’re underage, you can’t sign a contract. The parents were supposed to be fully involved. My kids should know better. I can’t be around them always. It takes two!
