U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly sentenced the R&B star after she and the court heard statements from Kelly’s victims.

The emotional sentencing hearing, which began around 7:30 a.m. Pacific , came more than nine months after a federal jury in New York convicted the “I’m a Flirt” singer on nine counts of sex trafficking and racketeering to recruit women, as well as underage girls and boys, for sex.

Kelly again came face to face with his accusers during the sentencing hearing in Brooklyn as several of the women recounted the pain he inflicted on them, telling the R&B hitmaker that they are “no longer the preyed-on individuals we once were,”

You made me do things that broke my spirit. I literally wished I would die because of how low you made me feel. Do you remember that?” one woman asked the fallen R&B star in Brooklyn court as he awaited sentencing in his federal sex trafficking and racketeering case.

Another victim said the Grammy Award winner, known for the 1996 hit “I Believe I Can Fly” and the raunchy musical odyssey “Trapped in the Closet,” manipulated fans into believing that he was someone other than the man the jury saw. Another said the verdict had restored her faith in the justice system.
