Kelly Indicted On New Sexual Assault And Abuse Charges

Kelly Indicted On New Sexual Assault And Abuse Charges

Three months after the R&B singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse by Chicago authorities, those authorities have announced an additional 11 counts of sexual assault and abuse against an underage victim.

The new charges come in addition to the original 10 counts with which he was charged in February, according to CBS Chicago. Listed in a screenshot of what appears to be the database for Illinois' Cook County legal system are multiple counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

If convicted of the aggravated criminal sexual assault charges, Kelly faces six to 30 years of a mandatory sentence on each of those four charges.

Kelly attorney Steve Greenberg said he was notified of the new charges but hadn't yet reviewed any of the court documents. He added that it's the "same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts".

Kelly has faced accusations of abuse, manipulation and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women for more than two decades.

R. Kelly is reportedly due back in court in a week to face the charges.

His attorney said Kelly has been recharged in his existing case as it pertains to one alleged victim.

The 52-year-old singer's lawyer is stressing that the new counts involve one of the alleged victims in the current case against him and not a new victim. He did say he understood that the allegations are "from years ago". "We expect the same results", he wrote.

He spent a weekend in jail on the sex charges before being released on $100,000 bail on February 25.

Avenatti told The Associated Press that he represents three Kelly victims, two parents and two whistleblowers, and that he has provided "significant evidence" against Kelly to federal prosecutors in multiple US attorneys' offices.
