R. Kelly has been transferred to federal prison FCI Butner Medium in North Carolina, which is a “medium security federal correctional institution.”
R. Kelly was previously being held in Chicago after being convicted on three counts of production of child pornography and three counts of enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity. He was sentenced to 20 years.
In September 2021, Kelly was hit with a 30-year sentence on racketeering and sex trafficking charges after being convicted in New York.
Last month, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx decided to drop sexual abuse and sexual assault indictments against Kelly, noting he was already facing decades in prison. Foxx claimed that her office has limited resources that would be better spent pursuing other sexual assault cases.
Kelly was one of the world’s biggest R&B stars, best known for his hit singles “I Believe I Can Fly,” and “Bump n’ Grind.” Now Kelly is broke and will likely spend the majority of his waking life behind bars.
