Singer R. Kelly was given a 30-year prison term for sexual offenses.

Nearly a year after the 55-year-old Kelly was found guilty by a New York jury, Judge Ann Donnelly imposed the sentence in federal court in Brooklyn.

“The verdict is in: R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years,” the US attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York said in a tweet.

The prosecutors had urged the court to put the “I Believe I Can Fly” artist behind bars for at least 25 years, saying he still “poses a serious danger to the public.”

In September, the fallen superstar was found guilty on all nine charges he faced, including the most serious of racketeering.

“His actions were brazen, manipulative, controlling and coercive. He has shown no remorse or respect for the law,” prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo.

Kelly’s attorneys requested a sentence of no more than about 17 years.
The verdict is handed down just over a month before jury selection is scheduled to begin on August 15 in Kelly’s separate, lengthy federal trial in Chicago.

According to the allegations in that case, Kelly and two of his ex-colleagues botched the singer’s 2008 pornographic trial and covered up years of sexual abuse of youngsters.

The former R&B music kingpin is also under investigation in two other states.
