R&B Singer R. Kelly Has Been Found Guilty of All Charges
For the past 5 weeks, the jury, which consisted of 7 men and 5 women, listened to multiple witnesses come forward to explain the horrendous experiences they had because of disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly. The defense tried to say that the women just wanted to advance their careers and that they were consenting adults, but the jury didn’t buy it. Instead, Kelly is faced a minimum of 10 years in jail and a maximum of a lifetime in prison.
