R&B superstar R. Kelly was indicated on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a class 2 felony, involving four alleged victims, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said Friday.

According to Chicago police a warrant has been issued for Kelly’s arrest. The charges handed up in an indictment from a grand jury span from 1998 to 2010, Foxx said.

Kelly faces a maximum of seven years in prison for each count if convicted. For years the musician has been associated with rumors and allegations of abuse, manipulation and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women for over two decades. Kelly strongly denies the accusations.

The indictment accuses Kelly of sexual acts with three children between 13 and 17. The age of the fourth alleged victim is undisclosed. The charges state Kelly used force or threat of force.

Kelly has a scheduled bail hearing for Saturday. Arraignment is set for March 8.
