WOODSTOCK – A former Huntley man serving prison time on a 2012 sex conviction, has additional sex crime allegations lodged against him.

Jimmy J. Dill, 42, is serving a five year sentence in Robinson Correctional Center on a aggravated criminal sexual abuse conviction, in which he pleaded guilty to touching the breasts of a 16-year-old girl who was friends with his daughter.

The latest 10-count indictment charges Dill with criminal sexual assault on a family member. The charges are Class 1 felonies, punishable by between four and 15 years in prison.

The alleged female victim was under the age of 18 years old at the time of the abuse and came forward after Dill was sent to prison, McHenry County Assistant State's Attorney David Metnick said. Dill is accused of having sexual contact with the girl multiple times between December 2009 and April 2010. He was charged in July.

His next court date is Nov. 18 before McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham.

Dill previously pleaded guilty to a Class 2 felony for sexually abusing his daughter's teenage friend, and was sentenced to five years in prison on the Class 2 felony. Additional charges from two 2009 cases against Dill – one drug-related and the other for possession of child pornography – were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.

The drug case alleges that Dill offered Ritalin – a prescription medication used for treating attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder – to a 17-year-old girl. Child pornography depicting unidentified children engaged in sex acts was traced to Dill's computer, prosecutors said at the time. He pleaded not guilty to those charges.
