R. Kelly has been charged with 10 counts by the Cook County State's Attorney. Cook County Prosecutors charged him with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse this Friday morning. Sources say that all of the alleged victims ranged in age from 13 to 16 years old. One of them is the subject of 4 different counts. There are a total of 4 alleged victims.

The criminal sexual abuse charge is a class 2 felony in Illinois, and each charge carries a max sentence of 3 to 7 years in prison.

A grand jury convened about a week ago to investigate the alleged sex tape that Michael Avenatti handed over to authorities. TMZ broke the story and 2 women testified for the grand jury over the last week, including one who provided physical evidence. We're told as many as a dozen women came forward to testify in the Grand Jury deliberation.
