Earlier this week, prosecutors formally dropped charges against R. Kelly stemming from accusations from four women that he sexually abused them. One of the accusers, Lanita Carter is upset that Kelly will not face justice.
“My case matters. When they told me that I didn’t have a case in 2003, I said OK, and I tried to keep on going. Now I come forward again, after you call me to come forward. And now you’re saying it again,” she told the Chicago Tribune.
Kelly was sentenced in June to 30 years in prison on a federal racketeering case in New York and is facing a minimum of 10 years at sentencing Feb. 23 on charges related to child pornography and sexual misconduct with minors.
“I’ve still got to be positive. But I can’t help but say, this is some bull, this is terrible for me,” said Carter. “I’m upset. But I still have to find the silver lining and I’ve still got to heal. At the end of the day, I’ve got to be able to walk away. But you know, it did not feel good.”
