Eleven accusers, nine women and two men, took the stand to testify against Kelly, whose name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, and describe the sexual violence and humiliation they had to endure at his hands.

He would not allow them to use the bathroom without his permission, controlled what they wore and forced them to call him “Daddy.”
