A Wonder Lake man is due in court Tuesday morning on charges alleging that he raped and sexually assaulted a young girl over the course of two years.
McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jeremy V. Hanson at 10:17 p.m. Friday, according to a five-count complaint filed in McHenry County court.
Hanson, 36, is accused of engaging in several sex acts with a girl and exposing himself to her between Sept. 21, 2015, and Sept. 21, 2017.
His relationship to the alleged victim is not clear. Hanson could not be reached for comment Monday. He remained at the McHenry County Jail on a $300,000 bond, meaning he would need to post $3,000 to be released.
The McHenry County Public Defender’s Office has not been appointed to represent Hanson, and it was not clear Monday whether he intends to hire a private attorney.
Hanson, of the 5600 block of Wonder Woods Drive, is charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and sexual exploitation of a child. The most serious charge, predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, is a Class X felony typically punishable by six to 30 years in prison.
A conviction of multiple counts would result in consecutive sentences, meaning Hanson would be required to complete the sentence for one offense before he could begin serving the next.
This is the first time Hanson has been charged with a felony in McHenry County, public records show.
