R. Kelly, the R&B star, was found guilty of sex crimes, including producing images of child sexual abuse and coercing minors into sexual acts.
Kelly, 55, had already been sentenced to 30 years in prison after a Brooklyn jury convicted him of racketeering and sex trafficking last year. The Chicago conviction could add more years to his prison sentence.
The 12-person jury convicted Kelly on six of 13 counts. He was found guilty of coercing three minors into criminal sexual activity and producing three videos of child sexual abuse. Kelly was acquitted of the charge of attempting to obstruct an earlier investigation into his abuse.
The federal trial in Chicago brought with it echoes of a 2008 state trial in which a jury acquitted Kelly of charges of producing images of child sexual abuse. The trial centered on a videotape that prosecutors said showed Mr. Kelly sexually abusing and urinating on a 14-year-old girl. After finding him not guilty, some jurors told reporters that the lack of testimony from the young woman-who had denied to a grand jury that she appeared on the video-had been a significant obstacle to Kelly’s conviction.
