A man from Naperville has been sentenced to six years in prison for sexually assaulting a female relative just over a year ago in his home on the city’s far east side.

Uriel Cid, 26, remains in DuPage County Jail in Wheaton, where he has been since being arrested for the crime. He faces possible deportation.

Cid last appeared Jan. 21 in DuPage County Circuit Court, when the case against him was continued to Tuesday, according to court records.

The matter, in the interim, was advanced to March 3, when Cid pleaded guilty to a Class X felony charge of aggravated criminal sexual assault causing bodily harm, records indicated.

Judge George J. Bakalis that day accepted Cid’s plea and sentenced him to prison. Records showed Bakalis ordered Cid to register as a convicted sex offender, and gave him 445 days of credit toward his prison term for time he has spent in jail since being arrested.

Five companion charges that included criminal sexual assault using force and aggravated domestic battery were dismissed in exchange for Cid’s plea, according to records.

Naperville police were called about 11 p.m. Dec. 14, 2012, to Cid’s home on the first block of Olesen Drive. That is in the Huntington Commons neighborhood southeast of the Naperville Country Club.

Written police reports did not reveal the age of the assault victim or the nature of the relationship between the victim and Cid. The victim was a female relative of Cid’s.

Deputy Police Chief Brian Cunningham in 2012 said through a spokesman that police would “not be commenting on this investigation, due to the sensitive nature of same.”

Court records indicated Cid’s only prior brush with the law occurred in late April 2012, when Illinois State Police stopped his vehicle and charged him with driving 26 to 30 mph over the posted speed limit, driving without a license and driving without insurance. He later pleaded guilty to all three charges and was placed on court supervision and fined, records showed.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have placed a “no bond” hold on Cid. It could not be immediately learned whether Cid has been in the U.S. legally or otherwise, but he will likely serve his prison term before facing possible deportation.

The crime of aggravated criminal sexual assault causing bodily harm carries a mandatory sentence of six to 30 years in prison upon conviction.
