R&B star, Robert Sylvester, widely known as R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for racketeering and other crimes.
It will be recalled that the 55-year-old has been in police detention since his arrest in 2019. He ha snow been sentenced by a federal judge on Wednesday, June 29, in Brooklyn, New York.
Federal Judge, Judge Ann Donnelly sentenced the singer to 30 years imprisonment and an additional 5 years of supervised release, and a #60 million fine during a hearing where seven of his victims spoke about suffering under his control.
Robert was found guilty in last September of racketeering and sex trafficking charges bordering on decades-long practice of recruiting and grooming girls and young women for illegal sex.
