Glendale Heights Man Sentenced to 20 Years for Sexual Assault of Stepdaughter
WHEATON – DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin announced today that Judge Robert Miller has sentenced Charles Williams, Jr., 40 (d.o.b. 12/27/1975) of Glendale Heights to twenty years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for sexually assaulting his stepdaughter over a period of approximately four years. Williams appeared in court this morning where he entered a plea of guilty to one count of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault, a Class X Felony.
Today’s sentence stems from allegations that beginning when the victim was approximately nine years-old until she was approximately 13 years-old, Williams sexually assaulted the girl on numerous occasions. The assaults took place at the family home, usually when the girl’s mother was working and Williams was home with the girl. In July, 2014, the girl’s mother noticed a mark on the girl’s neck. It was at this time that the girl disclosed to her mother that Williams had been sexually assaulting her since she was nine years old. The girl’s mother immediately contacted the Glendale Heights Police Department. The following day, Williams was taken into custody and charged. On July 28, 2014, Williams appeared in Bond Court where bond was set at $500,000 with 10% to apply. He has been held at the DuPage County Jail since that time.
“For four horrible years, this young victim was forced to live in the same house with a man who repeatedly sexually assaulted her,” Berlin said. “Following the assaults, she showed tremendous courage in disclosing to her mother what Mr. Williams had done to her and for that I commend her. Thanks to her strength, Mr. Williams will spend the next twenty years of his life behind bars where he will be unable to prey upon innocent little girls to satisfy his disgusting sexual desires. I would like to thank the Glendale Heights Police Department and the DuPage County Children’s Center for their work on this very disturbing case. I would also like to thank Children’s Center investigator Boris Vrbos and Assistant State’s Attorney Nicole Wilkes-English for their efforts on this case and for their continued efforts in protecting society’s most vulnerable population from sexual predators such as Charles Williams.
Williams will be required to serve 85% of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
