In September, a jury in New York convicted the R&B artist, 55, of racketeering and sex trafficking crimes.

The Chicago native whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly; was also fined $100,000 (£82,525). He currently faces separate criminal charges in three other cases.

The sentence, she said, would act as a deterrent from committing similar crimes in the future. Jurors at Kelly six-week trial in Brooklyn heard how he trafficked women between different US states, assisted by managers, security guards and other members of his entourage.

The court also heard how Kelly had illegally obtained paperwork to marry singer Aaliyah when she was 15 in 1994, seven years before the singer died in a plane crash.

The certificate, leaked at the time, listed Aaliyah’s age as 18. The marriage was annulled months later.

Federal prosecutors had recommended that Kelly be sentenced to more than 25 years in prison, given the seriousness of his crimes and & the need to protect the public from further crimes.

But his lawyers called for a sentence of 10 years, the mandatory minimum for his conviction or less. They portrayed Kelly as growing up poor in a household rife with domestic violence and suffering sexual abuse from a young age.

  1. LaLa Land 🏰of make belief 🎩 a raping of a five year old gets you five years but you have to be remorseful and of good character before you raped the five year old .

    Antigua do not respect children and women rights .
    The age of consent is only 16.
    16 is still a child if anyone needs to be reminded but grown men in this society enjoy the sick benefits of such a low age.

  2. Tro way the keys to the cell u fu last in jail money 💸 can’t save you from going to jail

  3. IAN MAGIC HUGHES OF UPP CURSEADER RADIO will likely big him up on his show.

    • It right between your flapper that don’t get use after you get iron you didn’t want from back when.

      Sound like you in love with Ian Magic Hughes. You just bex he didn’t want piece of you.

      • Seems you lacking iron since you always on ANR with your status about Sheffield Bowen typing nonsense like you have nothing better to do with your fingers, is best you use them and stuff dem where the sun don’t shine and see if you find some pleasure that’s if the area still intact 😂

  4. Bye,Bye,R Kelly and Ghislaine Maxwell.They are both off to long terms sentencing in Federal Prisons.

  5. Don’t forget it was the scum Papa Bird who lowered the age to 16 when he was doing Squeeze. Not one person say a thing and to this day it’s still 16. Let’s see what happens now.

    And now he’s a national hero. Antigua should be ashamed.

  6. I do not know anything about him doing Squeeze. I do know that he got a girl from Grays Farm,pregnant.She was in the same class as my younger sister at Greenbay Primary School at the time.

    • They called her Squeeze, the J’overt Queen. I am not surprised there are more underaged girls out there that VC National Hero Bird raped.

      They need to remove that bust from down by market.
