A 65-year-old man has been arrested after being charged with sexually assaulting a young girl under the age of 13 in Waukegan.
Larry R. Burks, 65, of the 900 block of South Jackson Street in Waukegan, was charged with one count of predatory criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony.
A criminal complaint filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleges Burks committed a sex act with a juvenile in September.
The incident, which occurred in Waukegan, involved a victim who was under the age of 13, the complaint said.
Prosecutors approved the charge against Burks following an investigation by the Waukegan Police Department, court records show.
A judge signed off on an arrest warrant on October 13.
Burks was arrested in late December and appeared in bond court on December 30.
Lake County Judge Christopher Kennedy set bond at $250,000, court records show.
Burks remains held in the Lake County Jail as of Sunday and would have to post $25,000 cash in order to be released.
If he is able to post bond, Burks will not be allowed to have any contact with parks, daycares, schools or anywhere else where children are present, according to a remand order.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
