R&B singer R Kelly has been convicted of several child pornography and sex abuse charges

Kelly is guilty on three of four of the pornography charges and three of five sex abuse counts.

The decision follows jurors deliberating for 10 hours over two days, after sitting through a three week hearing.

One woman testified she was sexually abused by Kelly, and says the singer recorded the interactions when she was as young as 14 years old.

In the closing rebuttal, the lead prosecutor said Kelly’s inner circle were focussed on doing everything the celebrity wanted as his fame skyrocketed.

The Assistant U.S. Attorney described videos of Kelly urinating on a girl.

She says, “that degrading act is forever captured on that video… who would do that?”

Kelly is already serving 30 years in jail.
