NEW YORK (AP):
With the R Kelly intercourse-trafficking trial nearing jury deliberations, a prosecutor on Thursday urged jurors to convict the R&B celebrity on federal prices that he used his superstar as leverage to sexually abuse women, ladies and boys for far more than two a long time.
“It is now time to keep the defendant responsible for the discomfort he inflicted on each of his victims,” Assistant US Attorney Elizabeth Geddes explained in concluding her closing arguments in federal court in Brooklyn. “It is now time for the defendant, Robert Kelly, to spend for his crimes. Convict him.”
