A 23-year-old Crystal Lake man pleaded not guilty Thursday to having "sexual conduct" with a minor.
Joshua Dancy, of the 900 block of Sheffield Drive, who is currently out on bond, pleaded not guilty to four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a girl between ages 13 and 17.
Dancy knowingly committed the acts of "sexual conduct" on Dec. 28, according to the criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court.
Dancy, who has been appointed an assistant public defender, is due in court Aug. 29. If convicted, he faces between three and seven years in prison.
His attorney declined to comment.
