McHENRY – A McHenry man remained in the McHenry County Jail on Wednesday, accused of sexually assaulting a young girl.
Bond was set at $80,000 for Edward E. Martin, 57, after his arrest Monday.
He is charged with one count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
He must post $8,000 to be released.
The abuse occurred over about the past year and a half, and the victim is now 13, said McHenry police Sgt. Ryan Sciame.
“She disclosed to her mother,” Sciame said. “He was confronted and did kind of a halfway admission to mom.”
Martin also made admissions to friends, Sciame said.
His next scheduled court date is today.
