A man was charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a juvenile over the course of multiple years in Woodstock, police said.
Jason Reinhard, 37, of Woodstock, was charged with four counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and three counts of exploitation.
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) notified the Woodstock Police Department in October of a reported predatory criminal sexual assault of a juvenile victim, Woodstock Deputy Police Chief Ray Lanz said Friday morning.
The alleged sexual assault incidents occurred in Woodstock from 2019 to 2021.
“From the time of the initial reporting to the Woodstock Police Department to the present, the juvenile victim had no contact with the suspect, who was identified as Jason L. Reinhard,” Lanz said.
The McHenry County Child Advocacy Center, DCFS, McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office and Woodstock Police Department all worked together to investigate the allegations.
As a result of the investigation, the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office approved charges against Reinhard.
An arrest warrant was issued and served for Reinhard, who is currently held in the McHenry County Jail on charges from different cases.
His bond was set at $300,000.
Reinhard has been held in jail since November, jail records show. He was sentenced to five years in prison earlier this month after pleading guilty to burglary and possession of meth.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday morning.
