Chicago — R. Kelly was charged with 11 additional felony counts of sexual abuse on Thursday, including some that carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
The new charges against Kelly stem from the sexual abuse of Jerhonda Pace, then a minor, that allegedly took place in 2010.
Pace told her story of alleged abuse in a docu-series called "Surviving R.
The charges include four counts of aggravated criminal sex assault, three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between the ages of 13 and 16, two counts of criminal sex assault by force and two counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse, according to court records.
In February, Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
In a tearful and sometimes combative interview with "CBS This Morning" anchor Gayle King, Kelly said the allegations against him were all lies. »
