Nine months after being convicted of sexually assaulting women and children, it is time for American pop singer R Kelly (55) to be sentenced. According to experts, he may have to spend from a decade to a full life in jail.
In September last year, R Kelly was convicted by a New York court of trafficking eight women. Since then his sentence has been debated. Prosecutors are seeking life imprisonment for him.
He argues that he has shown no mercy to the women and children who have fallen in his trap. He harassed them for two decades. Her lawyers say she is no longer a threat to society. It was revealed in court that Callie had married singer Alia in 1994, when he was only 15 years old. Then the certificate showed her to be 18 years old. Later their marriage was annulled. Nine years later, Alia was killed in a plane crash.
