A 58-year-old Algonquin man has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for sexually assaulting three children under the age of 13, prosecutors announced.
McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick D. Kenneally announced on Tuesday that Richard Lampp, 58, formerly of Algonquin, Illinois, was sentenced to 26 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
The case was scheduled to go to trial but Lampp accepted a plea deal in front of Judge Cowlin on July 6. He originally faced up to life in prison based on the charges.
Lampp pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a minor who was under 13 years old in July 2016 and also to abusing two other victims who were under 13 years old in 2014. Once Lampp is released from prison he will have to register as a lifetime sex offender.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorneys Sharyl Eisenstein and Victor Escarcida. The case was investigated by the Algonquin Police Department.
