WOODSTOCK – A 22-year-old Roselle man admitted to sex crimes with a young girl and received three years behind bars.

Allen C. Iroegbulem pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, both Class 2 felonies. Under a plea agreement with attorneys, McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather sentenced him to the minimum, or three years on each charge to be served concurrently.

With credit for time already served while awaiting trial, Iroegbulem will be out in about six months.

According to Assistant State's Attorney Dave Johnston, Iroegbulem had sex with the girl, who was then between 14 and 17 years old, in February 2012 and January 2013. The sex crimes occurred in Woodstock and Crystal Lake.

The sex was not forced and there were no threats or violence, his attorney Special Public Defender Hank Sugden said.

Authorities also are investigating allegations that Iroegbulem had sex with minors in DuPage County. He was found in a Schaumburg hotel with a 14- and 16-year-old, Johnston said. He has not been charged with anything based on that incident.

Prather previously increased Iroegbulem's bond after prosecutors alleged he made phone calls to a 15-year-old girl and asked her to send pictures of herself.
