R. Kelly is found guilty by jury, of all counts, in sex trafficking trial; Could face 140 years in prison

R. Kelly is found guilty of all charges in sex trafficking case and could potentially face 20 years in prisonIn the 1990s, R. Kelly rose to fame in the music industry, and soon became a legend. His early career saw him face scrutiny, due to his relationship with Aaliyah. They had a relationship, when she was still a minor, while he was 27 years old.

By 2001, R. Kelly was facing sexual abuse charges, due to an inappropriate relationship he had with another underage female. The trial lasted, until 2003, when the charges were dropped. But, in 2017, Kelly was reinvestigated, which led to 2019’s “Surviving R. Kelly” docuseries, leading to his arrest.

Since 2019, R. Kelly has been behind bars, but he stood trial, today. The jury found the once-acclaimed singer guilty of all nine counts of racketeering, in his sex trafficking case, where he allegedly exploited underage males and females. Now, the singer could face up to 20 years in prison.
