Charges filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago say the abuse dated as far back as 1998 and as recently as 2010. He's accused of sexually abusing four different victims.

Kelly has faced allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse for decades and was acquitted in 2008 on child pornography charges. Kelly, through his attorneys, has consistently denied the allegations.

The allegations were spotlighted again this year in a Lifetime documentary. Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx later urged victims and witnesses to come forward.

Foxx is expected to discuss the latest charges at a Friday news conference. Kelly faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse
