YORKVILLE MAN ACCUSED OF SEXUALLY ABUSING, ASSAULTING ADDITIONAL CHILDREN INDICTED ON 34 NEW CHARGES
February 4. 2020
A Yorkville man, who was charged in December of 2019 for allegedly sexually assaulting a child, was indicted on Monday by a Kendall County Grand Jury on 34 additional felony counts of sexual abuse and sexual assault against other minor victims.
Kendall County Court records show that 55 year-old Eliseo Alfaro-Ortiz of Weston Ave. had the additional charges filed last week by the Kendall County State's Attorney's Office.
He is being held in the Kendall County Jail on $80,000 bond, 10 percent of the bail. Prosecutors have motioned for an increase to $1 Million. Court records show Alfaro-Ortiz' next court date is scheduled for March 3rd at 9:00 a.m.
As WSPY previously reported, Yorkville Police officials said in 2019 that they expected additional charges would be filed against Alfaro-Ortiz as multiple allegations of sexual assaults against victims had been reported and were under investigation.
Police confirmed in an update on Monday evening that five victims total have come to police at this time.
Court documents indicate that the victims, family members, were under 13.
Court records show the alleged assaults and abuses happened in 2010, 2011, 2015 and 2017.
Alfaro-Ortiz had been charged with one count of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child in December of 2019 for an alleged sexual assault in 2007. The numerous additional counts include Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse and Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child.
Police say investigation into allegations began on December 1st and an arrest warrant was issued on the first charge on December 17th when Alfaro-Ortiz was arrested at his home.
Then, on December 19th, Alfaro-Ortiz was arrested at his residence for a warrant out of Fitchburg, Wisconsin regarding repeated sexual assault of a child.
Court records indicate the Kendall County Public Defender has been appointed in the cases and indicates a not guilty defense. The cases are being heard by Judge Robert Pilmer.
