R. Kelly is a “serious danger” to society, say New York prosecutors. They believe that the R&B singer, who has been incarcerated since 2019 awaiting trial, deserves to spend more than 25 years in prison.
One of Kelly’s lawyers believes the singer should receive a maximum prison sentence of fourteen years. Without giving details, she says that her “past and her traits” justify this sentence, 10 years below what the prosecutor is asking for.
The judge will pronounce his sentence on June 29 in this first case. R. Kelly is also being sued in the states of Illinois and Minnesota. But the judgment that will be rendered during the first trial in the State of New York could be decisive for the other prosecutions.
