R. Kelly is convicted on all counts after decades of accusations of abuse.4

R. Kelly, the multiplatinum R&B artist whose musical legacy became intertwined with dozens of accusations of sexual abuse, was found guilty on Monday of serving as the ringleader of a decades-long scheme to recruit women and underage girls for sex.

The jury in New York deliberated for about nine hours before convicting the singer of all nine counts against him, including racketeering and eight violations of an anti-sex trafficking law known as the Mann Act.

Republicans agree the U.S. must pay its bills, but on Monday they are expected to block a measure in the Senate that would enable the government to do so. Democrats, insistent that Republicans help pay for past decisions to boost spending and cut taxes, have so far refused to use a special process to raise the limit on their own.

My 2 cents opinion: They “threw the book” at Mr. Kelly, but he had been asking for trouble since the 90’s. He wrote “I Believe I Can Fly”, now he will have to write on a different theme while incarcerated.

Mi opinión: El Sr. Kelly venia desde 1990’s burlandose del sistema legal y acumulando victimas sexuales y dinero. Ahora encarcelado no podra cantar “I Believe I Can Fly”, el primer exito de su carrera musical.
