ISLAND LAKE – A Chicago man remained at the McHenry County Jail on Friday evening after being accused of sexually abusing someone younger than 13 years old.
Dominic Chess, 33, of the 62700 block of Oshkosh Avenue, Chicago, was booked into the McHenry County Jail on Sunday on aggravated criminal sexual abuse and domestic battery charges, jail records show.
The most serious charge, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, typically is punishable by three to seven years in prison.
Officers received a report Aug. 7 that a child had been sexually abused days earlier, Island Lake Police Sgt. Bill Dickerson said Friday.
One instance of abuse involving one alleged victim was reported to police, Dickerson said.
Neither Chess’ attorney, Terry Mohr, nor a representative from the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office were available to comment on the charges.
Chess’ bond is set at $100,000, meaning he must post $10,000 bail to be released, jail records show.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 26.
