The US singer, popularly known as R Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for sex charges.

The talented singer was sentenced on Wednesday after he was convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking last year at a trial.

Judge Ann M. Donnelly sentenced the 55-year-old singer in Brooklyn Federal Court on Wednesday.

The defence lawyers had requested a sentence of 10 years or less, while prosecutors had asked for at least 25 years.

Judge Donnelly told Kelly he created a trail of broken lives, adding that ‘the most seasoned investigators will not forget the horrors your victims endured.’

Kelly has been detained at Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn since his trial. It has not been revealed where Kelly would spend his sentence.
