R. Kelly's Inner Circle Turns In Sex Tapes


Last week R. Kelly was hit with 13 new federal charges of child pornography [click here if you missed that].

Apparently the new tapes came from his former inner circle...

From TMZ
Gerald Griggs -- who represents Joycelyn Savage's family among others -- tells TMZ the federal investigation run by the Northern District of Illinois uncovered over 20 videos of Kelly engaged with minors.
Both Griggs and our federal law enforcement sources tell us the tapes show multiple victims ... and prosecutors confirmed with multiple witnesses the girls were underage. Griggs says several of Kelly's enablers -- past and present -- flipped and turned over the tapes to investigators. He says those videos were exactly what the feds needed to secure indictments for sex crimes, including child pornography.

If this is true, he'll never see daylight again if and when he's convicted. RIP R. Kelly.

Robert Sylvester Kelly has to be the dumbest mofo in the world to still have and make tapes of himself doing anything. Like for real, he shouldn't even have a camera on his damn phone at this point. Stupid does not even begin to describe this waste of skin.

Possession of Child Pornography is defined under 18 U.S.C. § 2252. Possession of child pornography is defined in relevant part as knowingly possessing images or videos that contain a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. A minor is defined as any person that is under the age of eighteen. Sexually explicit conduct is defined as: 1) sexual intercourse, 2) masturbation, 3) bestiality, 4) sadistic abuse, or 5) exhibition of genitals in a sexual manner. The government must prove each element of the offense in order to obtain a conviction under § 2252.

For a first time offender, a conviction for possession of child pornography carries a sentence of 0-10 years in Federal custody. The statutory maximum for this offense is 10 years. There is no mandatory minimum associated with a first time offender that is charged with only possession of child pornography. Where a particular defendant will fall in the punishment range will depend on numerous factors including the facts of the offense, assistance to the government, and acceptance of responsibility.

If the defendant has a prior final conviction for a sex related offense in either state or federal court, the punishment range changes following a conviction for possession of child pornography. The punishment range for those previously convicted of a sex offense is 10-20 years in Federal custody. The mandatory minimum is 10 years. The statutory maximum is 20 years. Again the specific facts of your case will guide where a particular defendant will fall within the 10-20 year range.

Any violation of federal child pornography law is a serious crime, and convicted offenders face severe statutory penalties. For example, a first time offender convicted of producing child pornography under 18 U.S.C. § 2251, face fines and a statutory minimum of 15 years to 30 years maximum in prison. A first time offender convicted of transporting child pornography in interstate or foreign commerce under 18 U.S.C. § 2252, faces fines and a statutory minimum of 5 years to 20 years maximum in prison. Convicted offenders may face harsher penalties if the offender has prior convictions or if the child pornography offense occurred in aggravated situations defined as (i) the images are violent, sadistic, or masochistic in nature, (ii) the minor was sexually abused, or (iii) the offender has prior convictions for child sexual exploitation. In these circumstances, a convicted offender may face up to life imprisonment.

What 2:51pm said.

But being the narcissistic sociopath that he is, he didn't think he would get caught and didn't have an ounce of remorse about what he was doing. His enablers are no better. Just because they turned on him 20+ years later doesn't make them good citizens either. But they too will get their just desserts. We just won't see it play out in public like it will for R-Ah.

I also wonder what his staunchest supporters will say once they're presented with actual, irrefutable evidence which shows how much of a dirt bag he really is? Wait. Never mind ... I think I just answered my own question.

I read the indictments. The Chicago parents ain't shit! How freaking sad and disgusting that they basically sold their kid. And it looks like a RICO play for the NY indictments. The FEDS are not playing!

And the walls begin to fall ...

I agree with you 3:12 PM

His supporters are just like trump supporters. Blind beyond belief, in total denial, bamboozled hoodwinked and run amok. Just plain stupid!

OAN- thanks Dr Google for all of the copy & pasting. 2:53 PM 3:03 PM LOL

R in NYC:

Tell his two brainwashed sex slaves to start packing their sh*t. The gig is up. No more luxury condo living for them. No more shopping. No more lounging. Welcome back to the real world.

Everyone who seen/held on to the tapes need to go to jail as well. They knew this man was having sex with CHILDREN and did nothing. And the women who knew and did nothing are just as complicit.

@4:19, why do you think they turned them over? They ain't want to go to jail although they should not be exempt

Unknown said...

So we're turning tapes in now? The tape holders need to surrender themselves as well. For years they've been sitting on this evidence? Money and time has run out. All these folks need to be held liable.

All the people around him, who knew and had evidence this pedo was trafficking young girls need to go to prison too. I need all these filthy deviant assholes thrown under the jail.
