R. Kelly Receives 20-Year Prison Sentence for Child Pornography Charges

K Kelly

Okay, so basically, R. Kelly, the singer guy, just got sentenced to 20 years in prison for some really messed up stuff involving child pornography and trying to get minors to have sex with him. But, he's already serving a 30-year sentence for other bad things he did, like sex trafficking and racketeering.

The question was whether the new sentence would be served at the same time as the old one, or after it was finished. The prosecutors wanted him to serve them at the same time, so he would be in prison for longer and maybe never get out.

The judge decided to make him serve one year after the other sentence, which means he'll only be in prison for a total of 31 years. That's still a really long time, but he could technically be released when he's 80 years old.
