Singer R. Kelly Moved To North Carolina Prison To Serve 30 Years Jail Term

A convicted singer, Robert Sylvester Kelly, popularly known as R. Kelly, is currently serving his 30 years prison sentence in North Carolina.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed that the disgraced singer was moved on Wednesday, April 19, from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago to the Federal Correctional Institution in Butner, North Carolina.

In February, a federal judge in Chicago sentenced the convict to 20 years in prison for child pornography and enticement of minors for sex. He will serve all but one of those simultaneously with a separate 30-year sentence on racketeering and sex trafficking convictions in New York.

He still faces a solicitation of prostitution charge in Minnesota, although that case has stalled as his federal cases took precedence.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx last month decided to drop sexual abuse and sexual assault indictments against Kelly, noting he was already facing decades in prison, saying her office’s limited resources would be better spent pursuing other sexual assault cases.

56-year-old R. Kelly could be eligible for release from prison when he’s a little over 79 years old.
