R. Kelly was found guilty on Monday of racketeering as his trial came to an end following six weeks of graphic “sexual abuse” testimony.
The singer had pleaded not guilty to racketeering charges accusing him of sexually abuse over two decades.
Kelly – wearing a mask – remained motionless as the verdict was read out loud.
Jurors began the day by sending the judge a note asking for transcripts of testimony by two former Kelly employees and for a legal clarification.
Deliberations began on Friday at federal court in Brooklyn before the panel of seven men and five women took the weekend off.
The hitmaker now faces decades behind bars.
The 54-year-old Kelly is best known for the 1996 smash hit “I Believe I Can Fly.”
He is also charged with multiple violations of the Mann Act, which makes it illegal to transport anyone across state lines “for any immoral purpose.”
The guilty verdict comes more than 10 years after the musician was acquitted of child pornography charges at an Illinois state trial.
