A former Community Unit School District 300 substitute teacher faces new child sexual abuse charges in addition to those that led to his arrest last year.
Prosecutors filed charges on four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child younger than 13 against 62-year-old Carlos Bedoya last week in Kane County, records show.
He was charged again in December and January in two separate cases accusing him of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child, attempted predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child.
District 300 public relations director Anthony McGinn said in a statement Wednesday that school officials are aware of the police investigation into Bedoya’s conduct.
“District 300’s highest priority is the safety of our students,” the statement read. “We will continue to cooperate with law enforcement officials throughout this process and will provide any assistance needed as they conduct their investigation.”
It was not clear Wednesday whether any of the alleged victims were students.
Bedoya is due in court June 1.
