American singer R Kelly was convicted of using his star status to carry out a scheme to sexually exploit women and children that lasted more than twenty years.

The 11 prosecutors, including nine women and two men, made their statements in a heated six-week trial, describing how they were subjected to humiliation and sexual violence at the hands of Kelly.

After two days of deliberation, the jury found Kelly guilty of all charges.

The verdict is scheduled for May 4, which could lead to Kelly spending the rest of his life behind bars.
