R. Kelly Trial
As the verdict finding R Kelly guilty on all charges was announced, a number of his supporters were gathered outside the courthouse playing his music in defiance of the long-overdue push to #MuteRKelly. One supporter declared, "We will not give up on R Kelly." Meanwhile, Kelly's defense team is considering an appeal.
A popular sentiment being expressed in the wake of R. Kelly's guilty verdict following his sex trafficking trial has been how Black women like Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx would not rest until the disgraced singer was brought to justice.
Disgraced singer R. Kelly has been found guilty on all counts of racketeering and sex trafficking charges that span over three decades. He's been in jail since his 2019 indictment and could spend the rest of his life behind bars once he's sentenced.
As R. Kelly's second sex abuse trial comes to an end, his defense decided to go out with a bang by comparing his fight to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt to the fight for Constitutional rights of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A man lent further credence to the allegations that R. Kelly is a child sex predator by testifying he met the singer in a McDonald's when he was a 17-year-old aspiring rapper and was eager to do "anything" to get into the music industry.
A 23-year-old woman testified Monday that when she was 17, R Kelly forced her into a sexual and abusive relationship during which she was spanked, made to perform disgusting and humiliating acts and that she contracted herpes.
U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly, presiding over R. Kelly's federal sex trafficking trial, snapped at the disgraced singer's defense attorney for tweeting in court and violating her ground rules for the case, Court TV reported.
Day 2 of testimony during R. Kelly's sex trafficking trial in Brooklyn continued with Jerhonda Pace attesting that the disgraced singer with whom she alleged to have a sexual relationship wanted the then-16-year-old to look younger.
R. Kelly is feeling the weight of his ongoing sex trafficking case, both literally and figuratively, as he has run out of money and can't pay court fees or for new clothes needed because he's put on the pounds behind bars.
R. Kelly's first stop after leaving jail was a Chicago McDonald's where he's known for picking up underage girls.
