A federal appeals court says singer R. Kelly was correctly sentenced to 20 years in prison on child sex convictions in Chicago. Jurors in 2022 convicted the Grammy Award-winning R&B singer on three charges of producing child sexual abuse images and three charges of enticement of minors for sex. Kelly’s attorney called the decision disappointing and says they will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review Friday’s decision by the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Kelly is also serving a 30-year sentence imposed in New York for federal racketeering and sex trafficking convictions. He has separately appealed that sentence.
