An Island Lake man has been sentenced to probation as part of a plea deal after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a child family member in Island Lake.
Luis Dominguez-Tapia, 67, of the 900 block of Wembly Drive in Island Lake, was arrested on June 12, 2021.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleged that Dominguez-Tapia sexually abused a juvenile victim in November 2020.
The victim, who is a family member of Dominguez-Tapia, was between 10-13 years old at the time of the abuse.
Dominguez-Tapia allegedly assaulted the victim again in March 2021 by sexually penetrating her, the complaint said.
The Island Lake Police Department investigated the incidents and a McHenry County judge issued an arrest warrant for Dominguez-Tapia.
Dominguez-Tapia was charged with felony counts of criminal sexual assault of a family member, criminal sexual assault by force and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a juvenile family member.
He was later indicted by a grand jury on two counts of criminal sexual assault, three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, four counts of criminal sexual abuse and one count of sexual relations within families.
Court records show Dominguez-Tapia was released from the McHenry County Jail on a $100,000 bond and then later arrested again after having his bond revoked.
On Thursday, Dominguez-Tapia entered into a negotiated plea deal with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
He pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child, a Class 2 felony, in exchange for all of his charges being dismissed.
McHenry County Judge James Cowlin approved the plea deal and sentenced Dominguez-Tapia to two years of probation along with crediting him for 440 days of time already served in the jail.
Dominguez-Tapia was ordered to register as a sex offender and undergo sexually transmitted disease testing, court records show.
