The, “If I could turn back the hands of time” artist faced charges including bribery, sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, forced labour all dating back from as far as 1994 up to December.

He is expected to be sentenced in May next year.


According to media reports, one of the women testifying told the court in a written submission that Kelly had imprisoned, drugged and raped her and that she has been hiding from him due to threats made after she had gone public.
