This Week’s Sentencing
Kelly’s sentencing was issued by U.S. District Judge Ann M. Donnelly.
The details of the singer’s punishment came nine months after a jury found him guilty on charges including racketeering, bribery, sexual exploitation of a child and violating the Mann Act.
“With the aid of his fame, money, and most importantly his inner circle, R. Kelly preyed upon children and young women for his own sexual gratification, for decades,” said U.S. Attorney Breon Peace in a statement after the disgraced singer’s sentencing. “He used coercive control – exemplified by a pattern of isolation, rules, dependence, threats, intimidation tactics, physical abuse, and, at least once, the presence of a firearm – to force victims, including minors, to engage in sexual activity with him and others and to become unwilling participants in the pornographic films he wrote, produced, and directed.”
