R. Kelly’s musical accomplishments have been accompanied by a long history of allegations that he sexually abused women and children.

Now the R&B singer has been sentenced to spend the next three decades behind bars.

A jury found Kelly guilty in September of sex trafficking and racketeering charges.

Kelly has vehemently denied the allegations, but his accusers testified in detail that he subjected them to perverse and sadistic whims when they were underage.

Kelly still faces a trial in Chicago on charges of child pornography and obstruction of justice.
