Court orders R. Kelly to compensate victims

American R&B singer Robert Sylvester Kelly, known professionally as R. Kelly was convicted twice this year of s*x crimes, and has been ordered by a federal judge to pay at least $300,000 in compensation to some of his victims.

U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly told a hearing in Brooklyn that the money will be used to compensate two women named Jane and Stephanie for the cost of therapy and herpes treatment.

Once Stephanie's prescription costs are recalculated by prosecutors, that amount will likely increase, they say.

After a jury found Kelly guilty of racketeering and other offenses, Donnelly sentenced him to 30 years in prison in June.

At his sentencing, Kelly was called the "Pied Piper of R&B" when he confronted several of his victims who described his decades of "deplorable and inexplicable" abuse.

According to prosecutors, the 55-year-old Kelly used his fame and fortune over more than two decades to lure women and underage girls to have s*x with him.
