R&B singer R. Kelly, who is serving a 30-year sentence for sex crimes,

was found guilty of child pornography on Wednesday after a month-long trial in his hometown of Chicago.

Robert Sylvester Kelly, 55, was convicted of three counts of producing child pornography and another three of luring a minor into sex, the Chicago Tribune reported.

 Kelly, a three-time Grammy winner, was acquitted by a federal jury of seven other counts,

 including obstruction of justice in an earlier trial, the paper said.

Kelly's former representative Derrel McDavid and a former employee, Milton "June" Brown, were also acquitted today of obstruction charges.

 The 12-person jury took about 11 hours to reach a verdict,

which could add a strong conviction to the 30-year prison sentence the singer received in New York in September for recruiting teenagers and women to have sex.

In the New York case, the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer was found guilty of eight counts of sex trafficking and one count of racketeering.

R. Kelly's conviction in that city, the first in a trial in which the majority of the civil parties were black women, 

was considered a turning point in the #MeToo movement.  

The debates shed light on R. Kelly's "system" for attracting young people and raping them with the complicity of those around them.

Many victims said they met him at concerts and that members of the artist's team gave them pieces of paper with the singer's contact,
