CARPENTERSVILLE – A Carpentersville man was convicted Thursday of molesting a young child he knew.

Eduardo Hernandez-Flores, 37, of the 100 block of Golfview Lane, was found guilty by Kane County Circuit Judge Karen Simpson on three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, each a Class 2 felony, and one count of attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 3 felony.

Between July 9, 2012, and May 15, 2013, Hernandez-Flores sexually fondled a young girl and attempted to force her to fondle him, according to a Kane County State's Attorney press release. The victim was younger than 13 at the time of the abuse.

Hernandez-Flores is scheduled to be sentenced at 1:30 p.m. on July 24. He faces a potential sentence ranging from probation to between three and seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

“This young victim showed tremendous courage and bravery in coming forward to tell her story, not only to investigators but also to the court,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said in the release.

Hernandez-Flores remains in custody at the Kane County Jail with revoked bond.
