R. Kelly Sentenced To 30 Years

R. Kelly is looking at 30 years in Federal prison after he was sentenced on Wednesday following his conviction in federal court last year on racketeering and sex trafficking charges.

Whew chile, Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for using his singing and celebrity status to run a scheme to sexually abuse young girls and women.

Back in September, a jury convicted the disgraced singer of racketeering and sex trafficking crimes.

The Chicago native was also fined $100,000 and is currently facing separate criminal charges in three other cases in Chicago and Minnesota.

He did not make a statement during sentencing. The victims held hands while the sentence was read and Kelly had no apparent reaction.
