After receiving 30 years for racketeering charges, singer, R Kelly has been slammed with more years in prison after being found guilty of Child Sexual abuse.
Following a new trial on new charges, singer R Kelly has been found guilty by a federal judge on the charges of Child sexual abuse, according to the Guardian and has received an additional 20 years of jail time.
The Guardian confirmed that:
A federal judge on Thursday handed the singer R Kelly a 20-year prison sentence for his convictions on child sexual abuse images and enticement of minors for sex charges, but said he would serve nearly all of the sentence simultaneously with a 30-year sentence imposed last year on racketeering charges.
It is reported that R Kelly would not spend anything less than 31 years in prison, and he would not be eligible for parole till he was 80 and above.
The federal judge, Harry Leinenweber, also stated when reading the sentencing that:
“The whole theory of grooming was sort of the opposite of fear of bodily harm, It was the fear of lost love, lost affections [from Kelly] … It just doesn’t seem to me that it rises to the fear of bodily harm.”
