Singer R Kelly was convicted of racketeering during his sexual abuse trial in Brooklyn, New York.

The R&B singer has been accused of exploiting his fame to attract underage women and girls for sexual purposes.

The 54-year-old had pleaded not guilty to racketeering and to eight counts of violating a federal law making it illegal to transport people across state borders for the purpose of prostitution.

A jury of seven men and five women found Kelly guilty of all counts of racketeering after only their second day of deliberations.
