A Chicago prosecutor is dropping sexual abuse and assault charges against singer R Kelly, who is already facing decades in prison after being convicted of federal charges.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has said her office “will no longer be pursuing these indictments” and will ask a judge to dismiss those charges.

The charges date back to as far as 1998.

56 year old Kelly, was convicted in 2021 on racketeering and sex trafficking charges, and sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Last year, he was also convicted on sex crimes charges for which he is scheduled to be sentenced next month and likely won’t be allowed for release until he is 80.
