R&B superstar R. Kelly convicted in sex trafficking trial
NEW YORK (AP) — R. Kelly has been convicted in a sex trafficking trial after several accusers testified in lurid detail how he subjected them to perverse and sadistic whims when they were underage.
A New York City jury of seven men and five women found Kelly guilty Monday on a racketeering charge.
Kelly was accused of running a Chicago-based criminal enterprise that recruited his accusers for unwanted sex and mental torment.
The R&B star has denied any wrongdoing.
A jury of seven men and five women found Kelly guilty of racketeering. Prosecutors had argued that the entourage of managers and aides who helped the singer meet girls — and keep them obedient and quiet — amounted to a criminal enterprise. https://t.co/Dz9kXsX0Nx— The Associated Press (@AP) September 27, 2021
