“I have been practicing law for 47 years. During this time, I have followed many sexual predators who have committed crimes against women and children. Of all the predators I have followed, Mr. Kelly is the worst,” Allred said, a lawyer for the victims.
Alred explains why there are a few reasons that make Kelly a super predator. First, she uses her celebrity status to sexually assault vulnerable underage girls.
“These were not the May-October relationship that his defense attorneys wanted the jury to believe,” he said. “These were crimes against children and some adults.”
Second, Kelly was able to use the power of his business venture, including employees, to help him tempt victims, whom he isolated, intimidated, humiliated, embarrassed and humiliated, Allred said.
He further mentioned that the fallen star knowingly transmitted her genital herpes to her unintentional victims.
All of this “made him more dangerous than other sex predators” who had no money or network with Kelly.
The jury found Kelly guilty of criminal offenses including sexual exploitation of children, abduction, forced labor and violation of the Standards Act, including rape and the trafficking of women and girls in interstate trafficking.
