R Kelly: Justice has finally been served
After many years of R Kelly getting away with all the foul things, people said he finally got his comeuppance and was ultimately convicted of his crimes. A decade later, multiple women have stepped in to talk about his crimes, and now he got received the punishment he rightfully deserved.
According to ABC News, Monday, a New York jury had found R. Kelly guilty of all the charges placed on him. This decision has the whole world talking, and now it looks like Kelly will spend the rest of his life in prison.
For anyone that doesn't follow him, R Kelly (born Robert Sylvester Kelly) is considered the king of Male R&B for his famous songs like "I Believe I Can Fly, Your Body's Callin, and Trapped In. The Closet." For as good and talented he was behind the scenes, he was not an angel, and now his past has caught up with him, and he's never going to see the light outside the tunnel.
Thanks to the many witnesses that came to light, R Kelly was charged with targeting, grooming, and exploiting young women and men "for his sexual gratification and running a sex cult by trafficking people across state lines. Also, it was alleged during the trial that Kelly bribed a government worker when he married R&B singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was only 15.
The attorney who represented many of the women witnesses during the trial said about R Kelly, "Of all the predators I have pursued ... Mr. Kelly is the worst, R Kelly thought he could get away with this, but he didn't. I am very proud of my clients who agreed to testify in this case."
Kelly tried to use his celebrity status to get away with all of the things he's done. Such as marrying a minor, peeing on a girl made fun of on The Chappelle Show, having sexual encounters with many women, and bribing them not to say anything.
Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security Pete Fitzhugh commented on the matter, saying, "Today's verdict brings an end to Robert Kelly's decade-long reign of terror over many vulnerable girls, boys and young women; with this verdict, it is my sincere hope that it will also begin the healing process for these brave survivors."
This whole situation with R Kelly has proven that it doesn't matter how big of a star someone is or how much money someone has; that doesn't mean you can do whatever you want. R Kelly thought he could get away with anything but, karma has bitten him hard, and now he's going to be locked up for the rest of his life.
