R&B superstar R. Kelly was indicted Friday on charges he sexually abused four victims, three of them underage, over a span of a dozen years.
Kelly was charged with allegedly abusing the one adult victim in February 2003 — at the same time he was already fighting child pornography charges for filming himself having sex with an underage girl.
The four separate indictments charged Kelly with a combined 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for alleged misconduct occurring between 1998 and 2010.
Three of the indictments refer to girls who were under 17 at the time of the alleged sexual misconduct, identifying them by initials only.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx held a brief news conference at which she declined to take questions from reporters and mentioned only what was already laid out in the indictments.
Meanwhile, a county judge issued a warrant for Kelly’s arrest Friday morning, court records show. But in a text, Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg, said he was making arrangements for Kelly to surrender to police.
