BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Former East Baton Rouge Metro Council member, turned Louisiana State Representative, C. Denise Marcelle has rescinded a "key to the city" given to performer R. Kelly.

R. Kelly, known for his R&B ballads, was convicted Monday in a sex trafficking trial.

When confirming news about the rescinded honor to WAFB, an associate in Marcelle's office said, "Rep. Marcelle further emphasizes that the focus should be on the victims."

The "key to the city" was the subject of a report by the 9News Investigators when it was presented to R. Kelly nearly a decade ago.
