R. Kelly Found Guilty of Child Pornography
Yesterday, R. Kelly was found guilty of six of the 13 charges, including three counts of child pornography. The federal case, which was tried in Illinois, stemmed from videotaped sexual encounters with his goddaughter, who had testified that he started having sex with her when she was only 14. The goddaughter, who’s now 37, is believed to be the girl in the infamous pissing tape.
The singer had already been convicted in a federal trafficking and racketeering case in New York, where he was sentenced for 30 years in prison. With this new conviction, he’s facing up to an additional 90 years in prison.
