R&B singer R.



Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Wednesday.

This follows his conviction last year on federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges.

Kelly is accused of using his fame to ensnare victims he sexually abused.

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

Last September, a jury convicted Kelly on nine counts, including one charge of racketeering and eight counts of violations of the Mann Act, a sex trafficking law.

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.”
