R. Kelly was found guilty on all counts in his federal trial. The disgraced rapper had not been sentenced for those 9 counts of sex crimes. Even his victims spoke out in relief after the guilty verdict.
As previously reported, R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in jail after being convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking. His victims simply rejoiced after the verdict.
According to TMZ, the singer will be in his 80 assuming he will be alive by the time his sentence is over. Even then, there are still concerns he will be a threat, especially to minors.
When Judge Ann M. Donnelly ordered the 30-year sentence for Kelly, she also ordered mental health treatment for the singer upon his release. As revealed by the court documentation, his treatment will include therapy for an unspecified sexual disorder and will avoid contact with anyone under 18.
Prosecutors said Kelly is especially menacing to society, because he would have carried on his criminal behavior for years after standing trial in Chicago for sex crimes. The only way he will be allowed to be around someone under 18 is if it’s a family member, or if it is in a therapeutic setting with a “responsible adult” present.
The singer will remain under supervised release for 5 years once his sentence is done. Regardless, he is finally facing the consequences of his actions and that’s what matters now.
