Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008 and has consistently denied any sexual misconduct.

He has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. Each count of the new charges carries up to seven years in prison and the sentences could be served consecutively, making it possible for Kelly to receive up to 70 years.
