A New York man who pleaded guilty to traveling to Crystal Lake and sexually abusing a child has been sentenced to 90 days in jail, court records show.
Andrew W. Wiese, 32, of the 0-100 block of South Street in Patterson, New York, was arrested by the Crystal Lake Police Department early in the morning on August 29, 2020.
Wiese was indicted by a grand jury on four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, three counts of possession of child pornography and one count of traveling to meet a minor.
A grand jury indictment said that Wiese committed at least four separate acts of sexual conduct with a juvenile, who was between 13 and 16 years old, in August 2020.
The indictment also said that Wiese possessed child pornography of a juvenile in a hidden folder on his cell phone.
Wiese traveled from New York to Illinois after communicating with the child online, the indictment said.
In October, Wiese entered into a blind plea with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office, court records show.
Wiese pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony, in exchange for his other charges being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge approved the plea deal and sentenced Wiese to 90 days in the McHenry County Jail earlier this month.
Wiese was also sentenced to four years of probation and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
Wiese, who will also have to pay $6,339 in court fines and fees, is scheduled to be released from jail on April 3, records show.
