R.Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for sex crimes which included physically & sexually abusing young women and children.
The disgraced artist was found guilty on charges of sex trafficking and racketeering last September.
Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence Kelly, 55, 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.”
Kelly is being held at a federal detention facility in Brooklyn and is expected to be moved back to Chicago, where he faces another federal trial in August on child pornography and obstruction charges.
