R. Kelly charged with criminal sexual abuse
Musician R. Kelly has been indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse — a class 2 felony — involving four alleged victims, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said.
He is scheduled to appear in court Saturday for a bail hearing. Arraignment is set for March 8.
A warrant has been issued for Kelly’s arrest, Chicago police say. The charges handed up in an indictment from a grand jury span from 1998 to 2010, Foxx said.
If convicted, Kelly faces a maximum of seven years in prison for each count.
Kelly has been associated with accusations of abuse, manipulation and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women for more than two decades.
He has strongly denied the accusations.
