Close to a dozen more sexual offence charges have been levelled at R. Kelly.

According to court records, they relate to the assault and abuse of a minor aged between 13 and 16.

He is expected to be back in court in a week to face the charges.

The R&B artist was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse earlier this year.

He pleaded not guilty to all of them and was released on bail.
