R Kelly sentenced to 30 years in jail for sex trafficking, federal racketeering

R&B singer, R. Kelly, on Wednesday, was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

This follows his conviction last year on federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges.

Kelly is accused of using his fame to ensnare victims he sexually abused.

Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence the 55-year-old to more than 25 years behind bars, while his defense attorneys asked for 10 or fewer, saying prosecutors’ request was “tantamount to a life sentence.”
