September 28, (THEWILL) – R. Kelly has reiterated his innocence after he was found guilty of sex trafficking and racketeering.
THEWILL had earlier reported that eleven accusers, nine women and two men, accused the singer of sexual humiliation and violence.
After a two-day deliberation, the jury found Kelly guilty on all the charges.
Sentencing is fixed for 4 May and the singer is likely to spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Reacting, the singer took to his Facebook page saying that he will prove his innocence.
He wrote: “To all my fans and supporters I love you all and thank you for all the support. Today’s verdict was disappointing and I will continue to prove my innocence and fight for my freedom. #notguilty.”
