AURORA (AP) — A 37-year-old Aurora man who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting child he was caring for has been sentenced to an eight-year prison sentence.

In a news release, the Kane County State's Attorney's office says Alejandro M. Guerrero entered his plea on Friday to one felony count of criminal sexual assault in exchange for the eight-year sentence.

The plea and sentence stems from an incident in March of last year. Prosecutors say Guerrero was a caregiver for the child whom he sexually assaulted. The victim's mother saw the assault and called police.
