BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD)- On Monday, R. Kelly was found guilty on all charges in his sexual abuse trial. Due to his guilty verdict, he is on the verge of being stripped of an honor given by the city of Baton Rouge.
R. Kelly received the “Key to the City” of Baton Rouge back in February of 2013, given by Rep. C. Denise Marcelle. At the time, Marcelle was a member of the Baton Rouge Metro Council, she now serves as a member of the Louisiana House of Representatives.
According to TMZ, Marcelle says she knew that Kelly had been acquitted of the allegations in 2008 and did not ‘do her homework’ to truly understand what was pending against him. She says to TMZ that she still holds the power to rescind the key since she is the one that issued it to him.
