Singer R. Kelly was charged Thursday with 11 new counts of sexual assault and sex abuse, court documents show.

Four of the charges are aggravated criminal sexual assault, two are criminal sexual assault by force, three are aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between 13 and 16 years old and two are aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The aggravated criminal sexual assault charges are Class X felonies, which according to NBC Chicago is the most serious felony in Illinois and carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of six to 30 years.

“These ‘new’ charges are not really new — they are the same conduct, just charged differently. Same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts,” the singer’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, said. “And we still expect the same results.”
