HEBRON – A 32-year-old Hebron man who police said sexually abused a teenage girl when she refused to perform a sex act for money remained in the McHenry County Jail on Monday afternoon.

McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies responded Saturday evening to a home in Hebron, where family members of a 16-year-old girl called to report sexual abuse, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office sent Monday.

Christopher Brown, of the 111500 block of Maple Avenue, is accused of trying to pay the girl money in exchange for a sex act, police said. When she refused, he sexually abused her, according to the release.

Brown was arrested Sunday and charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and solicitation of a sex act. If Brown is convicted of the most serious charge, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, he could be sentenced to between three and seven years in prison.

McHenry County Judge Joel Berg set Brown’s bond at $100,000 Monday.

Brown also had an outstanding warrant on another unrelated case. He must post $20,000 bail to be released, jail records show.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
