American singer and songwriter R. Kelly have been sentenced to 30 years in prison for using his status as a celebrity to run a scheme to sexually abuse women and children.

Judge Ann Donnelly said the singer forced his victims to do unspeakable things, making them contract varying diseases.

“You taught them that love is enslavement and violence,” the Judge said.

A jury in New York, had in September, convicted R. Kelly of racketeering and sex trafficking crimes.

During the trial, jurors were told that the singer, with the assistance of managers, security guards, and other members of his entourage, trafficked women between different US states.
