The author of one of the biggest hits of 1995, I Believe I Can Fly, broke the law for the first time around the same time. For more than two years, R. Kelly was in custody, and now his fate is apparently a foregone conclusion.

The lawsuit against Robert Kelly ended that night. The artist was found guilty under 11 articles, including: bribery, racketeering, blackmail, kidnapping and sexual exploitation of minors. Moreover, some of the victims faced the crimes of R. Kelly back in the 90s.

Over the long weeks of litigation, the evidence against the pop singer was brought in in whole carts. 11 prosecutors and 45 witnesses spoke against him in court, and the media called this case one of the most high-profile cases in the MeToo era.

The verdict will be announced later, the singer faces from 10 years to life in prison. Given that R. Kelly faces a trial in two other states in the near future, it is unlikely that he will ever be released from prison, BuzzFeed said .
