A 71-year-old Madison man has been accused of sexually assaulting two children, after serving 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting a child in 1999.

Donald Biggs is accused of sexually assaulting two children, then ages 7 and 10, from September 2016 to August 2017 in Madison. Police also say he did not register as a sex offender with the Madison Police Department within three days of moving to the city.

He was charged in Madison County on Wednesday with three counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child under 13 and one count of failing to register as a sex offender.

This time, if he is convicted, he faces a mandatory life sentence.

Biggs was sentenced in Effingham County in 1999 to 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old. He was released in April 2012.

If convicted of all charges, Biggs faces a life sentence for each count of predatory criminal sexual assault. He's labeled as a "sexual predator" in Illinois State Police's database of sex offenders residing in the state.
