Sisters of R. Kelly believe his 30-year sentence is rooted in racism ...

Robert Sylvester Kelly, 29, is serving a 30-year prison time for producing child pornography and luring minors into sex acts, according to his sisters in a televised interview, which aired on Wednesday (July 27).

Cassandra explained to North American Correspondent Noel Phillips that African-Americans have always been treated unfairly. Lisa chimped in, saying, "Just because he has been found guilty does not mean he is guilty."

According to the sisters, Robert does not have to hold someone captive. Women come to him. Moreover, the sisters noted that a lot of the alleged victims are adamant. From her perspective, the only victim is her brother.

According to Insider, Kelly's lawyers have argued that his childhood trauma contributed to his hypersexual behavior, and that his older sister, Theresa, sexually abused him and his brothers for years since he was six years old. His legal team also tried to blame his ex-wife, Andrea Drea Kelly for his sexual mistreatment.

Lisa admitted that Kelly was exploited in the sit-down interview, but did not go into further detail.

Donnell Russell, Kelly's manager, was reportedly found guilty of stalkingone of Kelly's alleged victims in an intimidation plot. Russell also was found guilty of phoning in a gunfire threat during the screening of Surviving R. Kelly in November. He's scheduled to be sentenced in both cases, and could be sentenced to five years in prison.
