June 29 (BBC)– US singer R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for sex charges.

In September, a jury in New York convicted the R&B artist, 55, of racketeering and sex trafficking crimes committed over three decades in the music industry.

The Chicago native – whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly – has already spent close to three years behind bars.

He currently faces separate criminal charges in three other cases.
