A Carpentersville man was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday for attempting to sexually assault a young child he knew.
A jury convicted Juan C. Cuello-Calderon, 26, of attempted criminal sexual assault and attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse on June 16, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.
Prosecutors claimed that Cuello-Calderon went to the girl’s bedroom where she was sleeping and forcibly removed her clothing the night of July 21, 2014.
He attempted to touch her genitals, but she was able to kick him away, prosecutors said. The girl’s mother then came into the room to ask what had just happened.
The victim was younger than 18 years old at the time, authorities said.
Cuello-Calderon, of the 100 block of Madera Circle in Carpentersville, will be given credit for 389 days served in the Kane County jail since his arrest, according to the state’s attorney’s office. He must also register for life as a sexual offender.
He is also prohibited from contacting the victim for two years after he completes parole, the state’s attorney’s office said.
