R.Kelly found guilty on all counts, faces 10 years to life in prison

Fourteen alleged underlying acts were associated with the racketeering charge. The jury found that the government had proved 12 of those acts, which involved five victims: the singer Aaliyah as well as women named Stephanie, Jerhonda Pace, Jane and Faith. Three acts associated with an alleged victim named Sonja were not proved. (Most alleged victims went by their first names or pseudonyms.) The government needed proof of only two of the racketeering acts for a guilty charge.
Federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York successfully proved to a jury of seven men and five women that Kelly had been the head of a criminal enterprise whose purpose was to lure girls, boys and women to the R&B singer for his sexual gratification.
On top of awaiting sentencing in this New York case, Kelly will face a second federal trial on charges of child pornography and obstruction of justice in Illinois. Some of those accusations are related to a 2008 child pornography trial in Chicago in which he was acquitted of all charges.

Does not usually those 10 years become just 4-5 for good conduct and you spend the rest on home retention...basically real jail time is 10-20% of the 10 years

I think it depends on the nature of the offence. Someone in for as many sexual offences as Kelly is won’t be seeing the cold light of day until the majority of his sentence has passed, and that’s even if he gets parole.

Damn, that's not a very long time is it?

From what I understand, high risk celebrities don't get thrown in with the general population. According to Eazy E's son, Suge Knight was on some special program because of his "status". They were in the same prison together, imagine that.

It depends on how rich he still is. Word is he's broke but has some money dwindling in from royalties. If that ain't enough to sustain some lawyers, welp. Off to jail he goes for the full term. Welcome to the US legal system.

We can only hope. He also has upcoming trials in Minnesota and Illinois.
I think it’s inevitable. With the Epstein case still ongoing, they can’t be seen to be letting him walk free — which anything less than ten years can be seen as. I know the US justice system has had its moments of despair, but I have faith in it where Kelly is concerned.

He has 3 more court cases on the horizon for making child pornography, sexual abuse, kidnapping, slavery etc. Whatever he is sentenced to here is just the beginning of his worries.
I wonder how long it will be before they find him hanging in his cell? I gave it a year earlier for someone killing him, but I reckon it will take less for him to choose suicide.

I almost never cuss on here but... FUCK R. Kelly!

He's gotten away with this crap for so long... I'm so happy he's finally facing justice! After what he did to 15 yr old Aaliyah, her family should have put him the DIRT. Fuck him in the ass with a rusty acid tipped row of THORNS!

Dave Chappelle talked about running into R. Kelly after he made that video and I think he asked Dave 'how you gonna make a video about pissing on someone?'

Dave responded, 'how YOU gonna make a video about pissing on someone?"

He sure loves young girls.

Never knew this until I read up him, but he had some adult/teenager love affair with Aaliyah when she was 15 years old. Those two were messing around as she had fake IDs saying she was 18.
