June 6 is when R & B singer R. Kelly is scheduled to appear in court yet again. This time, it will be for 11 new charges of sex assault and abuse that prosecutors in Illinois have filed against him. Kelly was previously indicted in February, and is free on $1 million dollar bond. This latest series of charges reportedly involve 4 alleged victims, 3 apparently underage. 

The new 11 felony counts against Kelly include a charge that could possibly land him in prison for 30 years. 

January 2010 is when the alleged offense occurred.
