Following his conviction for using his fame and wealth to entice women and minor girls into his orbit for s3x over decades, R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Wednesday.
The verdict was handed down nine months after Kelly, 55, was found guilty of racketeering and s3x offenses in a trial that heightened allegations that had followed the singer of the Grammy-winning song "I Believe I Can Fly" for 20 years. In a federal courtroom in Brooklyn, U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly stated that the evidence showed Kelly's "indifference to human pain" and "sheer savagery" toward his victims.
"S3x is not an issue in this case." It deals with cruelty, violence, and domination. "Donnelly spoke with Kelly. "You left a path of damaged lives in your wake. Kelly, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is one of the most well-known individuals to have been found guilty of sexual misconduct in the #MeToo campaign against such behavior by well-known males. Although he remained silent during the hearing on Wednesday, he has consistently refuted claims of sexual abuse.
Following the reading of the sentence, Kelly's attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, informed the media that although he was "devastated" by it, he would appeal. According to Bonjean, thirty years in prison equates to a life sentence for him.
If you remember clearly back in the days, the judge heard from multiple victims, some of whom were inconsolable, who described how Kelly offered to teach them and assist them in becoming celebrities but instead subjected them to humiliating sexual behavior and physical damage.
R Kelly is now 55 years old, thus if we add the years he will spend in prison to his current age (55+30), he will be released when he is 85 years old.
