Prosecutors Suggest R. Kelly Should Serve A Minimum Of 25 Years In Jail

R. Kelly's Time In Prison Might Be Extended

This comes after his sex trafficking and racketeering convictions last year.

R&B sensation R. Kelly was convicted last September by federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York, and they’ve now submitted their recommendation for his sentence.

Prosecutors said in a statement filed Wednesday acquired by TMZ in anticipation of his sentence later this month that he deserves at least 25 years in prison, adding that there’s more than enough grounds to send him away.

As we previously reported, a Brooklyn jury found the former singer guilty on all counts in the sexual maltreatment preliminary he was confronting, such as charges that included six female casualties, as well as late performer Aaliyah, who married R. Kelly during the 1990s when she was 15 years of age.

The allegations against him span from at least 1992 to 2017, all of which he denies, involving racketeering, coercion, bribery, temptation, and sex selling, which he claims are not repulsive. He also has spent around two years in government service.
Multiple defendants testified in graphic detail about how Kelly subjected his minor victims to bizarre and cruel impulses during the trial.

“Indeed, the defendant’s decades of crime appear to have been fueled by narcissism and a belief that his musical talent absolved him of any need to conform his conduct – no matter how predatory, harmful, humiliating or abusive to others – to the strictures of the law,” prosecutors stated acquired by Reuters.

Furthermore, prosecutors are particularly worried, as per the publication, who broke the story first, since he managed to do all of these horrible actions even after he was apprehended and charged in 2008. On the other hand, his lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, has claimed he should serve less than 14 years in prison and would explain why in a filing next Monday.

Kelly still has a federal case pending in Illinois, as well as a state trial in Minnesota, and his sentence is set on June 29.
