UPDATED: Boulder Hill Man Faces New Sexual Abuse Charges

Kevin Freeman of Boulder Hill was charged Friday with sexual assault and sexual abuse of a second teenager. The incidents took place over a three-month period while Freeman was a youth leader at a local church, according to State's Attorney Eric Weis.

A Boulder Hill man faces more charges of criminal sexual abuse and sexual assault after a second teenage victim was identified, according to Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis.

Kevin Freeman, 27, of the 0-99 block of Shermead Road in Boulder Hill, was charged Friday with two counts of criminal sexual assault and six counts of criminal sexual abuse, Kendall County Sheriff’s deputies said. These charges stem from multiple incidents that occurred over a three-month period while Freeman was serving as a youth leader at a local church, Weis said.

Weis confirmed that the new charges concern a different victim than the Oswego police brought against Freeman late last month.

According to the Kendall Sheriff, Freeman is charged with having sexual contact with a 16-year-old he knows, in both Saw-Wee-Kee and Wau-Kee-Shaw parks in unincorporated Kendall County.

Friday’s charges are more serious than the first, Weis said, in that they allege sexual penetration.

Weis said if convicted, Freeman could face up to 30 years in prison on the sexual assault charges – each carries a maximum penalty of 15 years, and the sentences would be served consecutively. Criminal sexual abuse is punishable by up to seven years in prison, Weis said.

Freeman remains at the Kendall County Jail in Yorkville. His bond for the new charges has been set at $100,000.
