A 43-year-old man who lives in unincorporated Lemont was arrested Tuesday on charges of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl in 2003.
Greg A. Voegtlin, 17242 W. Bluff Road, was charged with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and one count of attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to the Will County Sheriff's Office.
Charles B. Pelkie, spokesman for Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, said charges were filed last week against Voegtlin, who is free after posting $4,000 of a $40,000 bail Tuesday.
Two counts against Voegtlin are for sexual contact that reportedly occurred in May 2003, when the victim was 14, Pelkie said. Two counts are for sexual contact that reportedly occurred in July 2003.
The fifth charge is for attempted sexual contact that reportedly occurred sometime between Sept. 1, 2005, and Nov. 30, 2005.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, sheriff's police said the alleged victim, who lives in an unincorporated area near Lemont, recently reported her abuse to police because she believes there might be other victims.
Aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 2 felony that carries a sentence of three to seven years upon conviction. Attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 3 felony, which carries a sentence of two to five years.
