According to CBS News, the disgraced singer was found guilty of three child pornography counts and three counts of enticing minors for sex. However, the 55-year-old was acquitted of seven other charges, including obstruction of justice and conspiracy to receive child pornography. His two co-defendants and former associates, Darrell McDavid and former assistant Milton “June” Brown were acquitted of all charges.

This is Kelly’s second conviction this year. In June, he was sentenced to 30 years in New York after being convicted of racketeering and sex trafficking.

R. Kelly, who was born Robert Kelly, has maintained his innocence in both the New York and Chicago trials.
