Bolingbrook man gets 160 years for sexually assaulting young girl

SHARE Bolingbrook man gets 160 years for sexually assaulting young girl

A southwest suburban man was sentenced to 160 years in prison Wednesday for sexually assaulting his then-girlfriend’s 6-year-old daughter.

William K. Freund, 33, of Bolingbrook, entered a blind plea of guilty last October to four counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, according to the Will County state’s attorney’s office.

Freund assaulted the girl in 2009, when he was dating the 6-year-old’s mother, prosecutors said. They broke up and Freund married another woman, who discovered photographs of the assault on his camera’s memory card in 2011.

“This is the second horrific case of this nature that my prosecutors have closed out in as many days with a sentence higher than 100 years,” State’s Attorney James Glasgow said in a prepared statement. “We can rest assured that William Freund will never take another step as a free man because of the appalling crime he committed against an innocent young girl.”

Judge Burmila handed down the sentence, which includes 40 years for each count to be served consecutively, the state’s attorney’s office said.
