Bedoya sexually assaulted the victim, who was younger than 13 at the time, between Aug. 2015 and June 2016, prosecutors said.

The sexual contact occurred at Bedoya’s home, Spring Hill Mall and Golfview Elementary School in Carpentersville, where Bedoya was employed, prosecutors said.

He must register as a sex offender for life in addition to the prison sentence, prosecutors said.

Charges are pending against Bedoya in five other cases with similar allegations involving 11 additional victims, the state’s attorney’s office said. He is due back in court Nov. 15 for those cases.
