The singer R Kelly has been found guilty of racketeering in his sex abuse trial in Brooklyn, New York.

The R&B singer was accused of exploiting his fame to lure women and underage girls for sex.

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

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