R. Kelly, a popular American musician, has been sent to a North Carolina prison to serve his prison sentence.
Kelly, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, was transferred last Wednesday from the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in Chicago to the Federal Correctional Institution in Butner, North Carolina, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
In February, the Chicago native was sentenced to an additional year in jail for his Chicago conviction on federal child pornography and child enticement charges, on top of the 30 years he’s already serving on a separate New York conviction.
In September 2022, a federal jury in Chicago convicted Kelly of six counts accusing him of sexually abusing three women – who testified under the pseudonyms Jane, Pauline, and Nia – on video, while acquitting him of enticement charges involving two other accusers, Tracy and Brittany.
The same jury acquitted him of seven other charges, including obstruction of justice, accusing him and two associates of rigging his 2008 child pornography trial in Cook County.
Kelly still faces a solicitation of prostitution charge in Minnesota, although that case has stalled as his federal cases took precedence.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx last month decided to drop sexual abuse and sexual assault indictments against Kelly, noting he was already facing decades in prison, saying her office’s limited resources would be better spent pursuing other sexual assault cases.
Kelly, 56, could be eligible for release from prison when he’s a little over 79 years old.
