NEW YORK (AP) — R&B superstar R. Kelly faces the possibility of decades in prison after being convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking in federal court in New York City. A jury found him guilty Monday after a trial in which several accusers testified he subjected them to perverse and sadistic whims when they were underage. Kelly was accused of running a Chicago-based criminal enterprise that recruited his accusers for unwanted sex and mental torment. Sentencing is scheduled for May 4. He also has pleaded not guilty to sex-related charges in Illinois and Minnesota. Trial dates in those cases have yet to be set.
