A man was sentenced to 11 years on Monday for sexually assaulting a child for several months, the McHenry County state’s attorney said Monday.
David Freeman, 29, formerly of Bloomington, pleaded guilty to predatory criminal sexual assault of a child younger than 13 years old. The abuse occurred from September 2016 to February 2017, prosecutors said. Prosecutors didn't disclose how Freeman knew the child or where the abuse occurred.
Freeman’s 11-year sentence was handed down by McHenry County Judge Robert Wilbrandt, who said Freeman's prison sentence is to be followed by a term of three years to natural life on mandatory supervised release.
He must serve 85% of his sentence with no day-for-day credit. Freeman also will have to register as a lifetime sex offender upon release from custody.
This case was investigated by Detective Verle Leard of the Harvard Police Department. The case was prosecuted by assistant state’s attorneys Sharyl Eisenstein and Mary Ann Scholl.
