Embattled R&B singer, R.Kelly, 52, has been charged with 11 new counts of sex abuse and assault involving victims between the ages of 13 and 16 in Chicago. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Cook County prosecutors filed the new charges against Kelly on Thursday, May 30th.
Chicago prosecutors charged the singer with aggravated criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual assault, and aggravated criminal sexual abuse, among others.
Among the new charges are four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault by force, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a victim between the ages of 13 to 16.
The four aggravated criminal sexual assault counts carry maximum terms of 30 years in prison. Kelly was already facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving four women years ago, three of whom were minors when the alleged abuse occurred.
The singer is scheduled to appear in court to face the allegations on June 6. In February, Kelly was arrested and charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four women.
