A McHenry man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child was sentenced Wednesday to 180 days in jail and released from custody with credit for time served.
Leoncio Renteria-Castilla, 55, of the 3800 block of Waukegan Road in McHenry, was indicted last July on charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, a Class X felony, and aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child, a Class 2 felony.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleged that Renteria-Castilla committed an act of sexual penetration with a child younger than 13 years old in July 2018.
Court documents show that Renteria-Castilla is a relative of the victim.
The incident was investigated by the Crystal Lake Police Department.
Renteria-Castilla entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office this week, court records show.
Renteria-Castilla pleaded guilty to an amended charge of criminal sexual abuse, a Class 4 felony, in exchange for prosecutors dismissing both of his more serious charges, one of which is a Class X felony.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge approved the plea deal and on Wednesday sentenced the man to 180 days in the county jail.
Renteria-Castilla was released Wednesday afternoon from the McHenry County Jail because he received credit for time already served awaiting his case.
Renteria-Castilla will also serve two years of felony probation and be required to pay $3,560 in court fines and fees.
Coppedge also certified Renteria-Castilla as a sex offender and ordered him to comply with sex offender registration.
Renteria-Castilla will also be required to undergo a sex offender evaluation and follow recommended treatment, Coppedge said.
