R. Kelly is facing a new series of sex crime charges. Cook County prosecutors brought eleven new felony counts against the embattled R&B singer yesterday, including aggravated criminal sexual assault, sexual assault by force, and criminal sexual abuse. The charges involve one of the four victims whom prosecutors claim Kelly sexually abused years ago. The woman says she began having sex with Kelly at the age of 16, a year after meeting him during his 2008 trial on child pornography charges. The singer was charged earlier this year with ten counts of criminal sexual abuse involving three underage girls and a woman.
