A 19-year-old man remained Tuesday in Will County Jail in Joliet, after being arrested and charged with sexually abusing a 13-year-old Naperville girl and possessing child pornography.
Jonathan A. Fogelman, 19, of the 13000 block of South Merganser Cove in Plainfield, is being held on $250,000 bail. He faces trial in Will County Circuit Court on two felony charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse where the accused is five years older or more than the victim and one count of possession of child pornography, according to court records.
Fogelman’s arrest followed a three-month-long probe initiated by members of the Naperville Police Department’s Youth and Social Services Investigation Unit.
Police Sgt. Lou Cammiso on Monday said the girl lives in southeastern Naperville.
Fogelman allegedly “had contact with the victim more than once but not an extended period of time,” Cammiso said. Police do not believe Fogelman engaged in sexual activity with other children, he said.
One of the girl’s relatives was a friend of Fogelman’s, and discovered images of child pornography on Fogelman’s cell phone, Cammiso said. Members of the girl’s family contacted police in December, he said.
Cammiso said a written police report did not state how long the alleged relationship between Fogelman and the girl lasted. Will County court documents showed one alleged instance of abuse occurred Aug. 1, while the alleged child pornography crime occurred Dec. 5.
Records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton indicated Fogelman is scheduled to appear there April 10 on intoxicated driving charges.
Downers Grove police about 11 p.m. April 1 curbed Fogelman’s vehicle on the 5600 block of Fairview Avenue in that village. He faces trial on charges of driving under the influence of a combination of alcohol, drugs or an intoxicating compound; driving under the influence of any amount of drug; possession of 2.5 grams or less of marijuana; and the transfer, possession, purchase or acceptance of liquor by a minor, according to court records.
Fogelman also pleaded guilty in July to a March 16, 2012 charge of driving under the influence of drugs in Channahon, court records showed. A Will County judge ordered Fogelman to undergo substance abuse counseling, fined him $1,700 and placed him on a year of court supervision, a probationary period that lasts until Dec. 5, records indicated.
Fogelman is scheduled to be arraigned on April 8, according to court records.
