As reported by Rolling Stones Magazine, Cook County's state attorney Kim Foxx has issued a statement saying,
"Each count is a class 2 felony and carries a sentence of between 3 to 7 years in prison if found guilty. There are four victims, including three females ranging in age from 13 to 16, tied to the 10 charges. The alleged incidents took place between 1998 and 2010... Four charges stem from Kelly’s alleged incidents with an underage girl initialed “H.W.” between May 1998 and May 1999. Two counts were drawn from “R.L.,” who, while underage, had sexual encounters with Kelly between September 1998 to September 2001. The most recent counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, from May 2009 to January 2010, are “J.P.,” who was also underage."
