Following a lengthy trial, singer R. KELLY has been found guilty in NEW YORK for one count of racketeering, with 14 underlying acts that included sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, and sex trafficking charges. He was also charged with eight additional counts of violations of the MANN ACT, a sex trafficking law.

KELLY faces life in prison for his crimes.

Federal Prosecutors rested their case following 19 days of allegations of sexual abuse and testimony from more than 40 witnesses about how the singer allegedly controlled the minute details of his accusers’ everyday lives.
