R. Kelly is on his way to prison for a long time. In September, a New York jury convicted the disgraced R&B star of racketeering and eight counts of sex trafficking. The 55-year-old artist will spend at least 10 years in prison, with the maximum possible sentence being life. Prosecutors have said he should spend at least 25 years behind bars. At his hearing on Wednesday, survivors confronted Kelly over his decades-long abuses. A woman identified only as Angela called the singer a Pied Piper who “grew in wickedness” with every new victim, while others testified he had degraded them and broken their spirits.
