Disgraced American RnB singer, Robert Sylvester Kelly, popularly known as R. Kelly, has been found guilty of child pornography.
R. Kelly, who is already spending 30 years in jail for sex offences in New York City, was found guilty of six of the 13 charges he faced in his Illinois federal case.
The jury in the Illinois case, convicted R. Kelly on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, according to multiple American mainstream media reports monitored by www.africanentertainment.com.
He was convicted on the child pornography counts he faced but was acquitted on seven other counts including charges of conspiracy and enticement.
Prosecutors had accused Kelly of concealing video evidence from his infamous 2008 case and threatening witnesses.
Kelly was further accused by prosecutors of videotaping sexual encounters with minors.
Again, R. Kelly’s goddaughter claimed he had sex with her hundreds of times before she turned 18 years old, saying their first sexual intercourse happened when she was only 15 years.
Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney, John Lausch, is reported to have said sentencing for Kelly will range from 10 to 90 years.
