R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison but prosecutors are requesting a longer sentence for the disgraced singer.
Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to add another 25 years in prison for his child pornography and enticement convictions in Chicago. If their request is granted, Kelly will not be eligible for release until he is 100 years old. Prosecutors have already requested that Kelly to begin serving his Chicago sentence only after his current 30-year New York sentence is completed.
“The only way to ensure Kelly does not reoffend is to impose a sentence that will keep him in prison for the rest of his life,” the government filing says.
Kelly’s attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, said the singer’s existing 30-year New York sentence, “Kelly would have to defy all statistical odds to make it out of prison alive.” Bonjean added that the average life expectancy of inmates is 64 and recommended a sentence of around 10 years.
White House Denies Aliens Have Landed After ‘High-Altitude Objects’ Shot Down
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said there is “no indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity” after reports that three unidentified high-altitude objects were shot down.
“I just want to make sure we address this from the White House. I know there have been questions and concerns about this, but there is no, again, no indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity with these recent takedowns,” Jean-Pierre said. “Wanted to make sure that the American people knew that, all of you knew that, and it is important for us to say that from here.”
Two of the UFOs were shot down by fighter jets in the U.S. states of Alaska and Michigan. A third was shot down in Canadian airspace.
Today, U.S. senators will get a classified briefing on the matter of objects getting shot out of the skies above North America. U.S. and Canadian authorities restricted some airspace over the lake earlier Sunday.
