R&B Superstar R. Kelly Convicted in Sex Trafficking Trial

Well now we know the answer. R. Kelly won’t be abusing any more underage girls, or  any age girls this lifetime! Whatever hope he had of escaping justice, as he did in 2008 when the lead witness against him declined to testify, this was a different ballgame as described below, and he now knows two things: R&

  • Those famous words, What Goes Around Comes Around, are actually true.
  • All the escape in 2008 actually did for him, was deliver a far harsher sentence than he would have received back then.

Yup. The prosecution didn’t leave much to argue about. Plus they used the novel approach of going after him as the head of an organized crime syndicate, mafiosa type organization, rather that just a serial rapist. That gave them flexibility in bringing up things beyond the normal statute of limitations.

We won’t know the actual sentence he receives until May 4th, but it is likely to be substantial.

One question that now arises is, who out there is currently participating in R. Kelly type behavior and says to themselves, “Hmmm, maybe I better re-think this plan?”

R&B Superstar R. Kelly Convicted in Sex Trafficking Trial

New York (AP) — R. Kelly, the R&B superstar known for his anthem “I Believe I Can Fly,” was convicted Monday in a sex trafficking trial after decades of avoiding criminal responsibility for numerous allegations of misconduct with young women and children.

A jury of seven men and five women found Kelly, 54, guilty of all nine counts, including racketeering, on their second day of deliberations. Kelly wore a face mask below black-rimmed glasses, remaining motionless with eyes downcast, as the verdict was read in federal court in Brooklyn.

Prosecutors alleged that the entourage of managers and aides who helped Kelly meet girls — and keep them obedient and quiet — amounted to a criminal enterprise. Two people have been charged with Kelly in a separate federal case pending in Chicago.

He faces the possibility of decades in prison for crimes including violating the Mann Act, an anti-sex trafficking law that prohibits taking anyone across state lines “for any immoral purpose.” Sentencing is scheduled for May 4.

One of Kelly’s lawyers, Deveraux Cannick, said he was disappointed and hoped to appeal.
