A 20-year-old man from Plainfield has been sentenced to three years in prison, for having sexually abused a 13-year-old Naperville girl two years ago.
Jonathan A. Fogelman was found guilty last week in Will County Circuit Court in Joliet of two felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to court records. He also was placed on 2 1/2 years of probation on a companion charge of child pornography, records indicated.
Judge Carla J. Alessio Policandriotes presided over Fogelman’s case, and on Tuesday formally sentenced him to prison, records showed.
Naperville police Cmdr. Lou Cammiso in 2012 would say only that the girl Fogelman abused lived in the southeastern part of the city. The abuse occurred during the summer of 2012, with the pornography found later that fall on Fogelman’s cell phone.
Cammiso said Fogelman “had contact with the victim more than once, but not an extended period of time.”
One of the girl’s relatives who was a friend of Fogelman’s discovered images of child pornography on Fogelman’s cell phone, Cammiso said. The girl’s parents or guardians in December 2012 notified police of that discovery.
A three-month-long investigation of the abuse allegations culminated in Fogelman’s arrest. It was spearheaded by members of the police Youth and Social Services Investigation Unit.
Fogelman did not engage other children in sexual activity.
Cammiso said a written police incident report did not state how long the relationship between Fogelman and the girl lasted. One instance of abuse occurred on or about Aug. 1, 2012, with the child pornography crime occurring that Dec. 5, according to court records.
Fogelman on April 1, 2012 was arrested by police in Downers Grove on a charge of driving under the influence of a combination of alcohol, drugs or an intoxicating compound, as well as illegal possession of marijuana and alcohol.
Records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton indicated he pleaded guilty last June 14 to a single, amended charge of reckless driving in that case. Associate Judge Liam C. Brennan that day placed Fogelman on 18 months of conditional discharge, a form of probation, and ordered him to enroll in the county’s DUI school, records showed.
Fogelman also pleaded guilty to a March 16, 2012 charge of driving under the influence of drugs in Channahon, according to records. A Will County judge ordered him to undergo substance abuse counseling, fined him $1,700 and placed him on a year of court supervision.
