Hoffman Estates Man to Serve 35 Years for Sexual Assault

May 28th, 2012 at 3:00 am

According to Triblocal, a 45 year old man from Hoffman Estates was sent to jail on Monday May, 21. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison on charges of sexually assaulting numerous boys. He was also charged with videotaping many boys.

John Agresta appeared in the Cook County Circuit Court in Rolling Meadows for his hearing. He was charged not only with criminal sexual assault but with aggravated child pornography, as well. According to reports, this is not the only time Agresta has been charged with sexual crimes. He is also facing charges very similar to these in Kendall County.

According to the 4 boys Agresta sexually assaulted and videotaped, most of the sexual acts took place in Agresta’s house. He got away with his crimes for years until one of his victims finally spoke up. A 12 year old boy that Agresta had sexually assaulted and had videotaped told police what had been occurring with Agresta. Police forces then received a warrant to search his home and what they found may surprise many people. Hidden in his house at least 75 DVDs. Each of these DVDS contained sexual images of young boys. Along with these DVDs was footage from a hidden camera that Agresta had placed in his bathroom.

All of these crimes occurred in 2001 and they boys were not even 12 years old. Agresta found his victims by targeting children of trusting family friends. He was arrested for his crimes in July of 2011. He will serve 25 years in prison for the sexual assault charges and 10 years for the child pornography charges.

The state of Chicago takes sex crimes very seriously. If you or a loved one has been accused of committing a sex crime, you will want to contact a professional attorney to handle your case.
