R.Kelly Found Guilty On Multiple Counts Of Child Pornography

The jury has finally reached a verdict after several months of deliberation.

After an 11-hour of deliberation on Tuesday, which was followed by a federal jury’s verdict on Wednesday in Chicago, R. Kelly was found guilty of six out of the thirteen charges brought against him, several of which carried lengthy mandatory sentences.

As reported by CNN, he was found guilty on three out of five counts of enticing a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity as well as three out of four counts of child pornography.

Following the verdict, Kelly’s attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, said in a statement obtained by the publication, “There was a mixed verdict, but we won more counts than we lost.”

“If this jury concluded that he was guilty on the first three counts, would they care enough to consider the evidence on the rest? And they demonstrated that they did. They did their job. They looked at each count separately.”

A number of women testified during the three weeks of testimony in the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer’s trial, accusing him of abusing them when they were minors.

One of them even had a video that the jury could view, which depicted the terrible crime Kelly perpetrated against her. According to her, the abuse began while she was a teenager in the 1990s.

In addition, Milton “June” Brown and Derrel McDavid, who were acquitted of allegations that they plotted to “receive child pornography,” are the other two co-defendants who are being held accountable for the same charges.

Kelly and McDavid were also found not guilty of charges that they conspired to impede justice in a previous case.

This news comes after Kelly was likewise found guilty of all counts in his Brooklyn sex trafficking trial, which further involved racketeering, pressure, bribery, temptation, and sex dealing. The allegations against him span from at least 1992 to 2017, all of which he denied.

Prosecutors recommended that he spend a minimum of 25 years in prison at the time. As of right now, according to a statement that TMZ obtained, attorney John Lausch said that the sentence will vary from 10 to 90 years.
