CHICAGO (CBS) -- Cook County prosecutors are getting more time to decide whether they will take singer R. Kelly to trial on sex abuse charges.
The Cook County State's Attorney's office on Monday was granted another 30 days to review transcripts from Kelly's previous trials.
The State's Attorney's office first filed charges against Kelly in 2019. They involved sexual assault and sexual abuse claims involving four women, three of whom were girls at the time of the alleged abuse.
The first of Kelly's trials in Cook County court has been delayed multiple times due to the pandemic, and a new trial date still has not been set.
Kelly is already facing a 30-year prison sentence on racketeering and sex trafficking charges, after his conviction at a federal trial in New York last year.
