R. Kelly Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison in Chicago Federal Sex Crimes Case

Published: Thursday 23rd Feb 2023 by Rashad

Despite seeing some of his sex abuse charges dropped in Chicago late last month (as we reported here), R. Kelly is still very much on the hook for multiple convictions on related charges.

Already serving a 30 year-bid for a sentence handed down last summer for federal sex trafficking and racketeering crimes, now the embattled R&B legend has been sentenced to 20 years for a separate federal sex crimes case in the Windy City.

US District Judge Harry D. Leinenweber handed Kelly a 20-year sentence following the singer’s September 2022 conviction on charges of child pornography.

Prosecutors were recommending the GRAMMY winner serve 25 more years consecutively to his 30-year New York sentence, but Leinenweber said nineteen of the years from the Chicago ruling will be served concurrently with the NY sentence (ultimately meaning the music legend will spend an additional year in prison).

At writing, Kelly nor a rep from his camp have issued a statement on the latest sentencing.

      Was this also your reaction to finding out diabetes will kiII you soon?

      Diabetes Unwashed is a vicious, disgusting homophobe. It really hates gay people (but loves pudding). It also thinks all women lie about r*pe, especially black women. To It, black women are all liars, except Beyonce, who, ironically, is the biggest liar of them all!

      Diabetes won’t kill it fast enough, so someone should mail it a gun with a fake PR release claiming Hostess plans to stop producing Twinkies. It’ll be dead in a day!
