R Kelly Ordered to Pay Victims He Infected with STI

Last month prison officials confiscated $30,000 from R. Kelly's prison commissary account to satisfy court costs and victim restitutions [click here if you missed that]. 

That $30k is not going to be enough...

At a restitution hearing in Brooklyn this week, R. Kelly was ordered to pay two victims $300k each for ongoing herpes and mental health treatment. A third accuser was not awarded any damages. 

R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison for federal sex trafficking charges in New York [click here if you missed that], is awaiting sentencing after being convicted on child pornography charges in Chicago [click here if you missed that] and is also awaiting trial in Minneapolis after being charged with one count of engaging in prostitution with a person under 18 years of age and one count of hiring a person under 18 years of age for sexual purposes [click here if you missed that].
