R. Kelly Sentenced in Federal Sex Trafficking Case at New York Court

June 29, 2022

It is judgment day for R&B singer R. Kelly. The 55-year-old musician appeared in federal court where he was sentenced to 30 years after being convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking. During a victim impact statement, one woman looked directly at Kelly and said, “You used your fame and power to groom and coach underage boys and girls for your own sexual gratification.” His attorney says this is not the end of the road and is looking to appeal the case.
