R. Kelly, the R&B superstar best known for his song “I Believe I Can Fly,” was convicted Monday (27/9) in a sex trafficking trial after decades of evading criminal conviction on multiple counts of misconduct relating to young women and men. children addressed to him.

The jury at the trial, which consisted of seven men and five women, found Kelly guilty of extortion. Kelly remained unmoved, her eyes looking down as the verdict was read.
