R. Kelly was found guilty yesterday of all nine counts he was facing in his sex trafficking case. In addition to trafficking, the charges included racketeering, bribery, coercion, and enticement.
There were also 14 “underlying acts” including sexual exploitation of a child and kidnapping. He could be looking at DECADES behind bars.
The charges involved six female victims including the late Aaliyah, who married Kelly when she was just 15 years old.
During their case, the prosecution called dozens of witnesses, including both male and female accusers who said they were groomed for sex, and were psychologically abused.
Kelly’s attorneys said they’re “extraordinarily disappointed” in the verdict, and will continue to, “fight on R. Kelly’s behalf.”
This was Kelly’s New York case, by the way. He’s still facing charges in both Chicago and Minnesota.
