This comes after his federal racketeering conviction from last year.

Kelly is accused of trapping the victims of his sexual assault by exploiting their fame.

The 55-year defense old’s attorneys requested a sentence of 10 years or less, arguing that the prosecution’s proposal was “tantamount to a life sentence.” Prosecutors had urged the judge to sentence the man to more than 25 years in prison.

In September of last year, a jury found Kelly guilty on nine counts, including one for racketeering and eight for contravening the Mann Act, which prohibits sex trafficking.

Kelly was charged with using his famous status and “network of people at his disposal to target kids, boys, and young women for his personal sexual enjoyment,” according to prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York.
