Bond reduction denied for Woodstock man accused of sexual abuse

WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County judge denied a bond reduction for a man accused of having sex with an underage girl and storing used condoms from what prosecutors called “other conquests.”

Bond for Juan D. Lebron, 28, of 2420 Bridgewater Drive in Woodstock, will remain at $75,000, Judge Sharon Prather ruled Wednesday.

Prather said Lebron’s previous criminal history and failure to appear in court in the past were reasons for keeping his bond at the higher amount.

He was charged July 13 with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony.

Lebron’s defense attorney, Public Defender Angelo Mourelatos, asked the judge to reduce his bond to $30,000.

Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Zalud said the alleged victim is a 13- or 14-year-old girl who is not believed to be related to the defendant. The girl told police she was naked on Lebron’s bed, and the two had sex.

In his apartment, investigators found soiled sheets and a jar of used condoms that will be sent to the crime lab for testing, Zalud said.
