A St. Libory man has been charged with nine counts of criminal sexual assault in St. Clair County.
Gage R. Little, 25, was taken into custody Tuesday, the same day an investigation began into a complaint of criminal sexual assault going on in the St. Libory area, according to a St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department news release.
Little was charged Wednesday with eight counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault of an 8-year-old girl and one count of predatory criminal sexual assault. As of Wednesday evening, Little remained in custody at the St. Clair County Jail, on $500,000 bail.
In order to protect the identity of the minor, police were not releasing additional information, said Capt. Bruce Fleshren.
Little was convicted of burglary in 2010 in St. Clair County. He was sentenced to two years of probation.
