Dis­graced R&B singer R. Kel­ly has lost his bid to quash a 20-year jail sen­tence for child sex attacks in Chica­go. The fed­er­al appeals court reject­ed Kel­ly’s chal­lenge, ensur­ing that the sen­tence remains in place.

Kel­ly’s attor­neys had argued that the indict­ment was filed after the statute of lim­i­ta­tions had expired, and that the 20-year sen­tence was exces­sive­ly harsh. How­ev­er, the appeals court sided with the orig­i­nal deci­sion, main­tain­ing the singer’s conviction.

The rul­ing sends a clear mes­sage that the jus­tice sys­tem will not tol­er­ate sex­u­al abuse and exploita­tion of minors, no mat­ter how pow­er­ful the per­pe­tra­tor may be. As Kel­ly serves his time, vic­tims and their fam­i­lies can take some mea­sure of com­fort in know­ing that jus­tice has been served.
