The new allegations involve a 6- and 13-year-old and occurred from January 1987 to August 1993.

“When law enforcement learns of allegations of sexual abuse, even when committed years or decades ago, we will prosecute those charges and hold the offender accountable,” said Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. “Even though a disclosure is delayed, the victim still deserves justice.”

Kelly is currently out on bond and under house arrest. He is scheduled to arraigned on the additional charges April 15.
