Jurors have found singer R. Kelly guilty of racketeering in a sex-trafficking trial lasting six weeks in New York City.
They reached the verdict on Monday after two days of deliberations.
Kelly, 54, had been on trial in Brooklyn Federal Court since Aug. 18 on allegations that he preyed on women and girls he lured into his entourage as far back as the mid-1990s.
The singer, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly and is perhaps best known musically for his 1996 Grammy-winning song I Believe I Can Fly, had pleaded not guilty to charges of racketeering and illegally transporting people for prostitution.
