R Kelly found guilty in racketeering, sex trafficking trial & faces decades in jail.

R. KELLY was on Monday found guilty of racketeering as his sex trafficking trial came to an end following six weeks of graphic testimony.

The singer now faces decades in jail after pleading not guilty to charges accusing him of sexually abuse over two decades.

Kelly - wearing a mask - remained motionless with his eyes downcast as the verdict was read out loud.

A jury of seven men and five women found Kelly guilty of racketeering on their second day of deliberations.

Jurors began the day by sending the judge a note asking for transcripts of testimony by two former Kelly employees and for legal clarification.

Deliberations began on Friday at federal court in Brooklyn before the panel of seven men and five women took the weekend off.

The hitmaker, 54, best known for the 1996 smash hit I Believe I Can Fly, now faces decades behind bars.
