R Kelly Sentenced To 30 Years For Sex Trafficking

The fall of R Kelly is now complete. After selling more than 75 million records and winning three GRAMMYs, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for sex trafficking and violating the Mann Act, which makes it illegal to take anyone across state lines “for any immoral purpose.” 

Kelly was accused of using his fame and money to prey upon children and young women for his own sexual gratification. “This case is not about sex. It’s about violence and cruelty and control,” Judge Ann Donnelly told Robert Sylvester Kelly before imposing the sentence. “These victims were disposable to you…you taught them that love is enslavement and violence and humiliation.” Victims who testified called him an abuser and a pedophile. He chose not to address the court.

What’s next for the 55-year-old? He’ll stand trial in Chicago federal court on child pornography and obstruction of justice charges in August.
