“Today’s guilty verdict forever brands R. Kelly as a predator who used his fame and fortune to prey on the young, the vulnerable and the voiceless.” “Mr. Kelly is a prolific serial predator. Despite numerous reports of his destructive abuse over the years, Mr. Kelly’s brazen acts of intimidation against his accusers kept him shielded from prosecution.” “Kelly, after grooming, isolating and intimidating his child victims, recorded them being sexually abused and humiliated by him. He directed these videos and produced them, not only for his own sexual gratification, but in some instances for the purpose of using these videos to silence and threaten his victims with public exposure of these tapes if they ever revealed what he had done to them.” “Of course, Mr. Kelly is disappointed. He was not anticipating this verdict because based on the evidence, why should he anticipate this verdict? I’m sure — I’m sure we’ll be appealing.”

While Chicago-based Leonard is well-acquainted with his city’s MCC, New York-based attorney Stacey Richman is equally familiar with Kelly’s current New York accommodations. “He will get the same food as everyone else. He, like everyone else, will have commissary money so he can access more foods and sundries,” Richman tells Billboard. Her former client, Lil Wayne, spent eight months at New York’s notoriously rough Rikers Island jail in 2010 after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon; Richman has no first-hand knowledge of Kelly’s conditions in lockup, but was speaking in general terms based on her professional experience with the penal system.Otherwise, Leonard says Kelly is locked in his cell for 22 hours a day or more and has to eat the same bland food as everyone else, augmenting his diet with what the attorney says are shockingly overpriced additional items from the commissary. “You can get, for instance, seven packs of Ramen noodles or six pouches of tuna per week and two packs of cookies and most people there are living on that stuff,” he says, adding that there is an exorbitant mark-up on the commissary items, such as $90 MP3 players that he suspects would go for $10 on the street and three-song packs that run $5.

The Jane Doe victim-witness said in a statement released through Assistant U.S. Attorney Maria Cruz Melendez: “It is very unfortunate to see a man lose his freedom, however, the crime that was committed was not only vicious but disturbing. My mental state deteriorated tremendously due to fear, invasion of privacy, and trauma among many other things. Because of your actions, I live in fear and have had to relocate my entire life. In that home were not only adults but animals and children under the age of 10. My family is traumatized and has been in distress due to this unlawful act. I hope this life-changing event gives you time to reflect on your actions.” (Source: www.rollingstone.com)

“Today’s guilty verdict forever brands R. Kelly as a predator who used his fame and fortune to prey on the young, the vulnerable and the voiceless for his own sexual gratification. To the victims in this case, your voices were heard and justice was finally served. This conviction would not have been possible without the bravery and resilience of R. Kelly’s victims. I applaud their courage in revealing in open court the painful, intimate and horrific details of their lives with him. No one deserves what they experienced at his hands, or the threats and harassment they faced in telling the truth about what happened to them.” “Mr. Kelly is a prolific serial predator. Despite numerous reports of his destructive abuse over the years, Mr. Kelly’s brazen acts of intimidation against his accusers kept him shielded from prosecution. In their failed attempt to evade justice, Mr. Kelly and his associates made one critical error. They underestimated the resilience and courage of the victims who refused to be silenced.”

That’s been the once high-flying star’s reality since he was arrested in July 2019 in Chicago by NYPD detectives and Homeland Security officers and indicted by a federal grand jury on federal charges that alleged aggravated criminal sexual abuse; Kelly has denied multiple allegations that he sexually abused a number of women, three of whom were allegedly minors at the time. And that’s still the case now, as Kelly remains detained during his New York trial on federal charges of racketeering and the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children that could result in a sentence of 10 years to life in prison.
