R. Kelly charged with 11 new counts in sexual assault case, with victim’s age between 13 and 16

R. Kelly has been charged with 11 additional counts of sexual abuse, it has been revealed. Chicago prosecutors charged him with 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.

The alleged victim is between the ages of 13 and 16.  The four aggravated criminal s-x assault charges are class X felonies in Illinois, which are punishable by six to 30 years in prison. All 11 charges are felonies.

The charges are far more serious than any of Kelly's additional pending cases.

'We'll see what it is, and we'll deal with it accordingly,' Steven Greenberg, Kelly's attorney, told the Chicago Tribune.
